Skittles is our 2 and a half year old Bearded dragon and has suddenly started having seizures
Unfortunately the vets at Animal Ark veterinary centre have never seen this before apart from tremors in metabolic bone disease.
One day Skittles seizured on and off from when we came back home at 1.45pm from leaving home for a couple of hours, all the way through till 8pm. Whether he was seizuring before 1.45pm we don't know.
Unfortunately there has not been a lot of research into reptiles seizuring, so the vets are extremely limited on what they can give Skittles or any other reptile, which is mainly fluids and antibiotics which is costing around £53 a week plus sometimes hospitalization which can be costly.
Skittles now needs an M R I to see if he has any tumors or maybe even a neurological problem which has only just started.
If we can raise the money for the M R I and consultation it will not only give the vets an understanding of what may be causing his seizures and to help him hopefully get better,but will also help the researchers also help other reptiles in the same situation and save the reptiles lives.
