mogiefREPTILE FRIENDS I NEED HELP! My little Prince has been doing great. Normal shedding and eating habits. Completely normal stools. I was home Thursday and he was fine but having just a little trouble with his shed. Then I came home Friday and his reproductive organs were stuck out of his body and his back legs seem to be paralyzed. He also has little pockets behind his front legs that look almost like fluid pockets. Immediately I rushed him to the vet. She was able to get his hemipenes back in. She says she doesn't know what the paralysis or swelling could be from though and I don't know how I should go about treating either.2w
macierouse Usually paralyzed legs means it's an impaction.
mogief@macierouse yeah the vet checked for that but said everything looked normal. I'm so confused
mrsabberdean You should add some hashtags to this so more people can see it to offer help, I hope he's okay :(
suburbanreptile Normally when we see this it's impaction or early signs of MBD. A higher calcium diet, plus adding a 5.0 UVB Bulb might help. I've even gotten a calcium liquid to administer daily to help from our vet before.
