Black cherry concentrate is used to help treat gout, it works by preventing gout crystals from forming in the joints and tissues of the body. If you suspect your dragon may have gout (swelling in the fore arms and fingers), begin giving extra fluids and reduce protein intake immediately. Start feeding only greens and veggies along with liquid calcium and black cherry concentrate. Only medicate if absolutely necessary.
If you think your animal may be developing or have gout, be sure to STOP any medications that could affect the kidneys such as Baytril and other antibiotics. Use pain medications such as Metacam with caution, you may want to use Serrapeptase while treating for gout.
