DRACO’S VET VISIT UPDATE
The extent of his knee is worse than I thought. In the X-rays, you can see the left knee is pretty much detached from either bones. What the vet thinks happened is he fell or broke it in such a way where it split right down the center of his kneecap, and it pretty much shattered. His previous owner clearly didn’t do anything and let the injury go without splinting his leg, therefore when healing the bone regrowth grew into a ball around his leftover joint.
The other possibility (which isn’t a yes or no it’s a thought), is that he may have cancer. It’s hard to tell if the grey mass around his knee is just the clump of bone that fused over or if it’s cancerous. Since I presume he’s young (around 2 years is a ROUGH estimate), cancer at his age is unlikely. Only with time will he be able to see. Later in his life I may get more X-rays to keep an eye on his bones. There was also a possibility of MBD before bringing him in. Since you can see this toes and bones, he most likely doesn’t have it. Blood work coming in tomorrow will hopefully reveal why his grip is weak and so unstable. He’s getting a full panel done to test everything possible, including arthritis (which is a possibility). It’s hard to tell if his weak grip and unstableness is due to a deficiency, arthritis, or possible start of cancer. I’ll post an update on his blood work once I hear from the clinic. As far as long term solutions, it’s hard to tell. The vet thinks leaving it as is would be the best, because it already healed and rebreaking a huge bone mass is risky. Right now he’s on antibiotic in case of possible infection in his joints. So he has injections every 3 days to see if it helps and a follow up in 4 weeks. His leg will always have that big bone mass covering his knee unless he gets surgery, which is risky since the injury was so bad and already healed the way it has.
MasyaAllah Tabarakallah. kondisi setelah shedding/pergantian kulit biasanya akan di ikuti dengan keluar nya warna baru dari kulit biasanya pola makan mereka akan berpengaruh, sejauh kami tau setelah shedding entah kenapa mereka jadi lebih giras 🤭 , video disini adalah baby ambilobe kita sedang makan, percobaan pertama sempat gagal namun akhirnya dengan semangat jangkrik di strike dengan sempurna 😂😂 , have a nice day all 🤗
