Elevated uric acid and calcium but not dehydrated

Our 9 month old bearded dragon was brought to the vet due to not wanting to bask, laziness, and preferring to sit with her mouth ajar. She is still eating and pooping. Bloodwork showed elevated uric acid and calcium. She does not have swollen joints or any symptoms of gout other than the bloodwork. The vet suggested xrays to check for follicles, but I'm more concerned about kidney issues. We changed up her basking spot so it is cooler and she is basking more now. Just trying to figure out what this could be. Thanks!

Not sure but there are some on here who could help -- what kind of UVB are you using? a coil or a tube?

Ok good make sure there is a piece of basking decor directly under it 12-15 inches for best effect of the rays
Yes, she has a piece of slate elevated by bricks. As per the vet, it doesnt appear to be a husbandry issue. All temps and setup are correct.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
