Wow I am so sorry to hear this --- as Xp29 recommended reach out to TracieClyde has been diagnosed with Gastric Neuroendocrine Tumors (GNT). I don’t know how much longer he has. Just looking for support.
He is only 2.5 years he’s just a little baby. My first and only beardie.
Wow, when do you sleep? You are involved with so many things and still find time to help here as well, it's amazing! But dang there couldn't be much time left for sleep lol . I've met a lot of cool people that loves reptiles but man your some kind of dedicated!Hello,
Clyde is definitely a trooper, bless him! You are doing a great job with him. As Cooper has stated,
it seems that it has become fairly common now. Genetics definitely play a huge role. I as well, am
worried in general, about the food supply & the commercialized feed for insects, animals, etc. So,
anything that you do get, be sure it is organic, non gmo, etc.
His diet sounds fine to me, no problem. He wont voluntarily eat on his own, at all? I am sure that
he does get frustrated with the dropper, etc.
The meds aren't too terrible, be sure he gets some type of probiotic if you aren't already giving one,
to help out his tummy.
Sure, the CBD oil has been on the market awhile. For reptile use, there is starting to be some data
out there, as well as starting doses, etc. My husband & I had began a small business for it, meaning
we literally grew it & harvested, bottled, etc with proper licensing here in Texas. It is catching on but
very limited. So, we don't have our website up for that right now. We do still have some though made
up in solution, with organic coconut oil as the carrier oil. The dose is very small but, it is natural & very
safe, too. I can look at my dosing chart info to get a specific amount but we are looking at 1-2 drops if
you used a solution that is a 1000mg per 1 ounce bottle. That is essentially 33.3mg/ml.
Each dragon responds differently but at this point, you never know what may or may not work.
Everything you are doing for him is excellent & I'm sure he greatly appreciates your love & attention
You can simply PM/message me if you wanted to try it out.
Let us know how he is doing!
Based on my math this would be about 0.04ml of solution, or 1.33mg CBD per day. Does that sound right? He is currently 434g. Online says to start with 0.1mg per pound of body weight (would be about 0.096 mg for Clyde I think) and work up to more, but that is for general reptile use not cancer patients, so I would assume Clyde could start with more?I can look at my dosing chart info to get a specific amount but we are looking at 1-2 drops if you used a solution that is a 1000mg per 1 ounce bottle.

The GNT actually caught us by surprise. Cooper had been fighting gout for a while (nearly a year as I recall). There was testing done for that and he started on Allopurinol. Aside from the swollen joints on his fingers he didn't seem to display any symptoms. I didn't yet know enough to keep track of his weight, so I didn't notice the sudden dropoff. That's a big reason why I typically suggest that people keep a weight chart so they can track weight over time and catch any changes quickly.@CooperDragon
Also if you could give me more insight on what GNT looked like for Cooper, prognosis wise, I’d love more info on that. I know every dragon is different but the doctors have yet to give me a real outline on that. It should be noted that his blood sugar came back “off the chart.” He is generally in good spirits, more lethargic but still has energy. When he’s in his tank undisturbed he has no stress marks nor dark beard.
