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
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"

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...
Hi folks, been a while!
Just had bowser in the vets as his left hand kept loosing grip anyway the prognosis is that when he had a touch of mbd to which was caught early, he did suffer a fracture in his back right leg but healed very well, he has a slight case of arthritis, this guy sees...
