Yes, he got xrays done but we were so focused on his lung issue. I scheduled another vet appointment but wont be available til Feb :( If it is pre-gout but not showing up on xrays, is it possible?
Uric acid levels needed to be taken for gout- so blood work Xrays wont show gout-- flagging to Tracie

These are his first initial blood work taken when he had his fall/injury. So you can compare.

Update: This isnt good, his other front leg now is starting to have muscle spasms/twitching :( I'm extremely worried. I dont understand. If his xrays and calcium levels are normal and does not indicate MBD what is causing this? @Drache613

So I noticed on his elbow joint area is like a bump / nodule. Hard to kind of see but when you run your finger you can feel the bump/hardness and i did the exact same thing over on his other front limb (the better one) and did not find this "nodule/bump" and also it just overall swollen :(

He is having issues with eating :( He needs nutrients but trying to make a way to where im not having to force feed him which causes more stress. I was looking at Repashy products and was wondering if something like this would be ok to try: Repashy Beardie Buffet

Good news he did eat some of the Repashy Beardie Buffet still not eating as much but I guess he doesnt need much food now that he is 6 years going on 7 years old. The limb is still bothering him and also his back leg kicks out/ spread out i think to make up for the front limb. Not sure what is going on there. Seeing another vet in early Feb. Hopefully be able to find out more to whats going on with him.

He is eating silkworms and hornworms at the moment, alittle greens but not too much. He is really blackbearding and headbobbing a lot. Question on the silkworms since I havent had much experience with them. What does it mean when the silkworms color changing? Is it good or bad? I gave silkworm to him but it was half white/darker colors. Hopefully thats not a problem. Thanks!

I am not sure about the color changing-- could be possibly going into a moth --- sounds like hormones raging -- normal for this time of the year - my 6 yr old doing the same thing beard going black to dark orange etc

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
