Sadie has a swollen leg (see attached photograph)

Exclusively the back right hand side leg. Concerned it may be gout so I will cease supplementing for a few days, however it is only that leg?

She will avoid putting weight on it.

Eats ravenously (still willing to move across the viv to get food) poops great, drinks great. No other concerning behaviours.
