Have you taken her to the vet yet. She's NOT overweight at all! If she can't walk she's got major problems. It sounds like she was having a seizure last night and will die if not treated ASAP! The vet can administer a shot of calcium! But you have to do it today or I fear that you will lose your little baby like I did. My Egor passed away from MBD because I didn't know what it was or how to treat it. He was a big guy but still looked healthy but had problems moving around. He had a seizure one day and died later on from kidney failure. What happens with MBD is that the beardie's body is so severely low in calcium that the body starts to take calcium from the BONES! Then the organs can't perform properly because of the lack of calcium in the blood. You can mix some calcium powder with gatorade and give it to her orally. But not too much, you can overdose. I would just get her to the vet. Good luck. I have a lot of experience with this and would be happy to answer any questions you may have SoCalSerenity. Just trying to help. I rescue beardies and try my best to help others in need.

God bless,
Veronica
