    Not Gout - Anyone See This Before - Pic Heavy

    Well, this is a sad post, as Kasha had to be put down yesterday. Despite giving calcium at every feeding she did not get better. The antibiotics had seemed to halt the foot and ankle erosion and swelling, but 6 weeks later I noticed the teeth on her right side had detached from her jaw. Further...

    Littlefoot is 10. This year she has already laid 3 clutches of eggs. Clutches are laid over the course of three or four days with anywhere from 1 to 8 being laid per day. Clutch size is around 15 to 20. My concern started with her weight. She is very skinny, prominent hip bones,prominent tail...

    @AHBD @Drache613 AHBD Yes the feathery outgrowth is what the vet is most concerned with. She does not seem to have too much trouble walking, although I have not witnessed much. She is usually where she wants to be by the time I get back home from work. I put her on her basking area in the...

    I do see that the ankle looks a bit odd as well, which does look more like a septic arthritis, osteomyelitis situation, but on the bad foot x-ray you can also see that the largest toe bone has what looks to be a growth of some kind in and around it. Also the joint that connects that bone to the...

    How to put UVB inside cage??

    I may or may not have the perfect answer, but for both of my 75 gallon aquariums there is a little plastic lip around the inside of the tank. I have drilled small holes into this lip, allowing for some wire to go through the lip and around the light fixture. I was able to mount both my UVBs...

    Worse Symptoms After Vet Visit - Pneumonia - RIP

    Again, thank you all for your concerns and wishes. I must say that I have dealt with his death a little better than I had for Emmalee, maybe it is because he had been sick for so long, and I expected him to go a couple of times before he did. He is going to be very missed, even though i only...

    Hissing? But Only In Dig Box

    I noticed 1 egg in Littlefoots viv on Tuesday. So Wednesday I put her in her dig box. She dug a large burrow, but I also noticed that she was puffed up and very loudly exhaling, mouth open with a sideways stance like aggresion. No big deal. She came out of her dig box and returned to normal...
