I have an ill female CWD that is about 3 years old. I have had her for 2 years now and have not had a problem like this until fairly recently. Everyone I have spoken too that does reptile rescue, exotic vet (2 different docs), a respectable man dealing with reptiles for 40 years, and more (including myself with only 2 years of real reptile experience) are all stumped as to what is wrong with my CWD. I desperately need some ideas of some kind to help her so if anyone has anything to throw out there that we can look into, please do. I need ideas to throw out there to my vet in case they are missing something. Here goes: - Was diagnosed with MBD due to multiple fractures and vet believes that it started after she laid her eggs last May. She had new fracture in tail, fractured pelvis, fractured finger, and a dislocated toe. You wouldn't know looking at her because she walked fine and no other physical changes except dangling toe which is why the appointment was made. We noticed due to x-rays from her dislocated toe. Doctor put her on pain meds, baytril, and oral calcium. After a few weeks she slowly on and off went downhill. I bought all new lighting because I thought mine was defective bc my enclosure is set up accurately. I ordered a 160 watt mega-ray this time as I always use MVB's. - By her check up date, she was army crawling. She was very inactive and would hardly eat though she looked great. She developed tail tremors and literally just walks on her elbows though she prefers not to move much at all and does not climb. - Check up revealed that she was relatively healthy. Ultrasound showed no eggs. X-rays showed healing fractures and strong bones but also infection in the dislocated toe and possibly calcium buildup in tummy. Blood work showed calcium at like a 14 and phosphorous about a 3 or 4. All other things in blood work were normal range except only one little thing. The one that represents muscle deterioration. The doc said that it shows this high in animals who are literally starving to death and the body begins to eat the muscle or in an animal that has been severely wounded. It is normally around 100 or slightly higher. Ormarr's was at 400. The vet said that was really high. We put her on injectable antibiotics and amputated the toe far above the infected region. The antibiotics were to last a month. - Antibiotics were officially finished on Tuesday. Aside from one moment where she lifted one elbow off the ground, she has not improved. She refuses all food except pinky mice which the vet wants me to feed every few days. She is not active. Color is great as usual. No climbing. Some basking but a lot of hiding and some soaking. Army crawling continues. Tail tremors continue. Before and just after she dislocated the toe, she acted normal and walked perfectly. Weeks later the crawl started. Absolutely no improvement in about 4-6 weeks. The vet said if it was caused by her toe, she would be recovered after being treated...... -----To sum up symptoms------- - Hides - Rejects all food but pinky mice - Army Crawls - When balancing in my hands or anywhere she feels unstable, she will not use front legs. She will spread back legs out all the way and use them to balance. - Fingers curl under a good bit more than my other 2 water dragons. Maybe not important, but vet caught that one too and wasn't sure why. - Tail tremors - Beautiful coloring - Can't climb - Extremely heavy breathing like she has been running but x-rays reveal clear lungs but smaller than what appears to be normal lungs. - infection in toe but amputated and treated with antibiotics. - Holds nose more so aimed towards sky all the time. - Not producing eggs. Last production was May of 2011. My other healthy water dragon female is already laying again and they laid the same time last time....not sure if they should differ. - Originally diagnosed with MBD and placed on oral calcium due to multiple fractures. Revoked diagnosis several weeks later when they did blood work and found her tummy had lots of calcium sitting in it and her blood work revealed calcium at 14 and phos at 3 or 4. -Only thing abnormal in blood work was high level of thing that represents muscle deterioration..... She is far from starved and unless semi-older fractures or a recent dislocated toe could spike it, there was no severe trauma. The vet saw nothing that they thought would be significant enough to spike it. - No improvement on antibiotics. Was on Baytril for several weeks and after toe amputation was put on an injectable antibiotic that stays in freezer (never remember the name) and that was for a month. Done with antibiotics as of last Tuesday. No improvement. If I remember anything else, I will add it. Hoping someone can add something that I can look into. I hate to feel like she is suffering. She really does try to get around and I feel like she is miserable. Could it be a brain problem? Maybe head trauma that was somehow not caught? I don't know where to take this but I feel like I am getting nowhere fast. Please try to help Ormarr. She is seeing a vet so I am not looking for a free diagnosis. Even if someone nails it we will go to the vet every day if necessary until she is all better. I just need someone to throw out suggestions at the least that I can discuss with my vet. I am so desperate. Please help. Thanks to whoever even made it this far reading this.
