Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hello! My name is***** will be the expert to assist you today with your vet-related questions.
Is there any chance you could send me a short video?
Thanks. Just make sure it's the right size and format
Please ignore the phone call request, the system sends that automatically.
Received, thank you. Have you changed anything in the husbandry recently? (temperature, substrate)
I see. Thank you. Has he showed any signs of hybernation?
Thank you. Please allow me a few moments to type my reply
Based on the information you have provided and the video you've sent, I'd just monitor the little one. If this condition gets worse in the following 7-10 days, he'll have to have a full neurological examination at your local vet (or exotics specialist) I am not concerned at all with his back legs right now; from what I can see, there is no proprioception deficits and the placement is correct. It might be a little tricky to examine him on the soft substrate (like the sand), but I am pretty sure if you are to put him on a hard surface (rocks?) his grip would be normal. The only other thing I can think of is hibernation? They usualy slow down all their musculoskeletal components and reduce their reflexes - but you don't think that's the case.
You're more than welcome. Any worries or questions, let me know.
Thank you for choosing Just Answer.
Have a lovely day!
