High Uric Acid

Good evening everyone. Unfortunately, our Zero is sick again. Within the past three weeks he has been more lethargic hiding most of the day.

In order to get him to bask, we have to physically take him out of his hide. Well he only pooped one a week for two weeks (which is not normal for him) so we contacted the vet and brought him in Tuesday. He eats but only after he has basked of course.

Well he’s gaining weight, he’s 490 and is officially an adult (he’s a fresh adult). The vet was concerned for his hiding everyday so we did some blood work and fecal sample.

The fecal sample is negative. But, we got his blood work back today and everything is normal but his kidney function or uric acid is a 19 when it’s supposed to be an 11 I believe is what she said. She said she would like to consult her colleagues before proscribing medicine and advised more frequent soaks while feeding EmerAid IC Herbivore Intensive Care Nutrition in the mean time and in order to make him hydrated. She told us she would get back to us this week.

Has anyone else been in this position before? Outside of him being lethargic, he’s still active when he’s out of his tank and he’s such a cuddle bug. I couldn’t help but cry after her phone call because I feel like maybe I should did this to him by continuing to feed him bugs everyday. I don’t know, I am more scared he is in pain. I want him to be happy and healthy. Not sick.

Please go over the UVB your using and surface basking temps-- No stick ons for for temps and please NO coils --- is your basking bulb a solid clear bright white bulb? With him gaining weight thats a good thing --- we need to rule out the lighting your using for a reason hes not basking-- it could be hes trying to brumate that is a possibility but we need to check lighting and temps- I am going to flag Tracie our vet tech on the board about the uric acid level she can help better w/ that -- if you have the blood work please post it

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!
