    I'm pretty sure oil is good to aid making the joints more supple. Dip them in a bit of oil and dust them?

    I'm going to give it a go man!! I can at least update the forum with results so at least everyone can know if it works or not! Sounds harsh but from that point of view other chams can be saved in the future

    I am going to dip locusts in cod liver oil. I can't see that causing any harm to him

    Ok, I need the top advice you guys may have! Most live foods have protein so how do I reduce it? He eats grapes sometimes but a panther chameleon on veg could be impossible! What can I put in his water to trick him into getting a potential cure into his system?

    The vet has got back to me. I will copy and paste his response here "Bowser has gout, which in humans is painful. If he does not look more comfortable after a week or two on Allopurinol, we should consider putting him to sleep" So the fat lady is singing

    Many thanks! If there's one thing I can't stand in life it's adversity! You know almost everything I do in my life I always find a way to solve it but this is so darn difficult. It ain't over til the fat lady sings!!

    I am grateful for your responses! I even thought of cranberries for gut loading and cranberry juice in his water so it helps his organs but is it a drop in the ocean? Is it only delaying the inevitable? Two chameleons I have owned and dizzy got To 6 1/2 and was egg bound and passed and now...

    I'm back!! Bowser!

    I'm going to be upfront and realistic! He is in discomfort I know that and his front left hand is not gripping the branches because of the joint, it was realised via bloodwork. The medication will apparently make his four worse which tells me he hasn't got long, the vet told me he has months...

    Just got off the phone to the vet. His early mbd is great so I'm proud of that part but the test results are showing his uric acid level is 1200 when should be bellow 700 so he has severe gout. There is not much I can do now but try and beat nature. Advice anyone? Bowser is not even old man...
