"Hello, I have a Bearded Dragon that is approximately 6 months old. Both his front and hind legs seem very week and he loses his balance often. We initially had him on reptile carpet but switched to cali-sand. After noticing problems with is legs we immediately got rid of the cali-sand and put him back on the reptile carpet. He is growing regularly and has frequent bowel movements. We are feeding him crickets dusted with Calcium & Vitamin D as well as offering him veggies daily. He has full spectrum UVB lighting (we use the repti-glow 10). He is currently in a 55 gallon tank. Basking area is approximately 100 degrees F and his cool side is 80 degrees F. He no longer can climb to his basking area. He doesn't exhibit any of the other MBD symptoms other than the limitation of his leg usage. I keep reading about Partial Paralysis of hind legs. I am worried that he ingested something that may have caused this. Is this reversible? Is there anything I can do to have him gain his strength back in his legs. Any help would be appreciated. "
