Visceral Gout is deposits of uric acid salts that
have built up in an organ. It most frequently affects
the kidneys, liver and heart. The deposits continuously
irritate the organ, and can ultimately cause the organ
to fail. Your lizard will be very apathetic, and will
be opening and closing their mouth with discomfort. Their
movements will be jerky as well.
If your lizard is a herbivore, it may be caused by
animal protein being digested.
Your lizard is not getting enough water, and
is being dehydrated.
If your lizard was sick, and had to have antibiotics,
the antibiotics may be having negative effects.
There is no treatment known.
