Have Reptile Care Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
I was awake all night worried about Speedy. I guess I thought I would get a reply immediately when I asked the question, I was so anxious because I just love him so much. I ended up taking him to a reptile specialist this morning and your diagnoses was very similar to his.
By the time I got the little guy to the vet, he had popped his legs back out of his shell. The Vet said that he had edema which could indicate a kidney problem or possible gout. He ran a Reptile panel on him and I will find out on Monday what the results are. In the meantime, the Vet told me to start giving him a vitamin supplement in case he has a vitamin A deficiency. Lydia
