    The top picture in the above post can also be linked with floppy tail syndrome AKA FTS, not just MBD. Each are closely related and one can be the symptom of the other. If FTS is the only issue and not MBD treatment is generally vastly different.

    Wolf Runner-from Monster-He was one of the geckos that Steph used for models for her poster.

    His MBD was congenital-Mom must have been under-calcified when she laid his egg.

    He has actually IMPROVED since I originally got him. He receives UVB light every day and extra calcium in his CGD.







    He's quite the little acrobat!!

    Oh, Tara!!!

    He's BEAUTIFUL!!!

    Poor baby...it's really odd how the crest at the back of the neck narrows that way!!

    He looks like he's a real sweetie!!!

    Good luck with him-from one MBD Mom to another!!

    These pictures are breaking my heart. MBD is such a terrible disease. Bless you all for helping these poor babies.

    My garg is in great health, but my rescue beardie came to me with MBD as well as a host of other health problems.

    It does look a bit different in beardies than it does in geckos, but the general symptoms are similar. In any case, here are a few shots of Budo's early days.

    Underbite


    Legs curled at awkward angle


    Quite often times, this is how he would walk; on the backs of his hands.


    Very swollen, almost spongey upper limbs


    Thankfully, it was mild enough to be cured with six months of prescription liquid calc twice daily as well as some helpful exercises to help strengthen his bones. Budo is doing wonderfully now!
