Hi there, can you start a thread mother of dragons, otherwise this will be sidetracked and all mixed up with the O.P.'s baby dragon.. Post pics of your dragon on your new thread, include pics of entire enclosure and lighting as well as close up of the joints that you think are being affected by gout. If it's advanced he may need Allopurinol, the same med. that is used on humans for gout. Syringe feeding some dark cherry juice mixed with water is good but as you have seen, it stresses some dragons out.
