Heyyyy everyone I know it’s been while. Work and keeping up with 5 has kept me busy. Shyla is having trouble with her leg. I took her to the vet and they thought it was just a sprain but unfortunately it hasn’t gotten anybody. She was put on pain medication as well as calcium as she is about to lay eggs as well. The first visit was $450 (which was actually rent) but she had to be seen. Sadly, I need help with the 2nd vet appointment, I was out of work a lil over 2 weeks and had surgery and right now I just can’t afford it. On the low end the new appt cost is about $240 and high $550. The Central Virginia Reptile Rescue here in VA has started a fundraiser to help assist me with Shyla’s vet appointment. Here is the link Central Virginia Reptile Rescue, Inc. on Instagram: "We are fundraising to help cover vet costs for Shyla the bearded dragon. She needs to have surgery to fix her back leg and the vet quote is $512. Anything helps and we will post updates on our page. Shyla already had an initial visit at Wellesley Animal Hospital where she had an ultrasound and was prescribed medication. The next steps that we are fundraising for is there may be infection in her leg and they will need to sedate her. Her owner does not have the funds for further treatment, and the medication doesn't seem to be helping. Currently, Shyla is dragging her back leg and is unable to walk properly."

No amount is too small. Thank you in advance to anyone who is willing to assist us!

Hello,

That is very nice of the vet to start a fundraiser for you to help out. It was the rescue facility who
helped start the fundraiser?
To get more attention, you can post the fundraiser link in the General Discussion area.
How is she doing today? I know it's tough, vet costs are very high. When is the next vet appointment
for her?

It’s actually the local reptile rescue here in VA that started the fundraiser. Her next appointment is tomorrow. She went from limping to now she’s dragging it and can’t move it. Also, just get thigh was only swollen now it’s the whole leg. The only good thing is it hasn’t stopped her and she’s eating and still trying to move. This is her leg now

Bless her heart. I hope they can figure out what is causing it, and get it resolved.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
