Ahh okay. Figured as much since he just finished his brumation but wanted to make sure. I will post a photo as well of the silkworms.
They can treat the uric acid level -- which is gout allopurinol -- Tracie is going to haft to weigh in on the other issuesUpdate on Dyno: He was seen by the vet and good news he doesnt have MBD or gout or broken bones/ dislocations but it was worth double checking. Since I have been giving him better feeders/calcium dusted daily per 1 feeding and using organic multivitamin powder from beardeddragonco
He seems to be doing better but still having issues with that limb trembling/using function/mobility. Did another few more views of xrays and showing there is some kind of stomach mass. The vet suspects he may have GNT which is Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumor and it might have spread to his other organs. On his blood tests it is showing high glucose (diabetes) and his uric acid level is going up. I ask the vet is there any treatment for it and she said no, so im wondering if anyone here has any information on it or insights?
I am diabetic and also suffer from gout - I take Allopurinol for the gout - and insulin for my diabetes - I dont know if they can put dragons on insulin or not -- I know they can for cats - Tracie can answer those questions but if he has a tumor as you posted did they say anything about surgery?So if his glucose is going up it could be due to Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can occur if you have diabetes. High blood sugar (glucose) can injure nerves throughout the body. Is there anyway to lower his glucose levels?
Its good you pulled him off the roaches and are feeding the silk worms now --- meds would be allopurinol for the uric acid levels and insulin for the glucose levels - are you getting the ultrasound done?Oh okay. Her next steps suggest an ultrasound but it just going to keep going up and up in costs. I dont mind doing what I can for him but I also dont want to put him through all that stress when really there is no medication or anything except just wait/watch and hopefully doesnt progress He isnt showing any other signs no vomiting or blood in stool.
