Allopurinol for gout and brumation


New member
Do I still give my beardie his Allopurinol and supplements while he's in brumation? He hasn't started bumation yet but I know it's coming soon. He's been on allopurinol and supplements for over a few months now and is doing great.

That is always a hard situation to deal with when they are on medication for gout.
The best I can say is that you likely need to give medication at least a few days a
week if at all possible, depending on the severity of gout.
They do slow down so it makes it hard to medicate, but if you can encourage him to
bask a few days weekly that would be helpful. You never want a relapse that is too
painful because it makes it hard for them to recover from it.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
