I run a reptile and small animal rescue in North East Wisconsin. A couple days ago I took in a juvenile blue iguana. She is very small for her estimated age (vet says 6 months old). She also has a nasty spinal deformity from MBD. From what I've observed so far, she has use of both back legs and feet. She's clumsy but can support herself upright and can walk, run and climb. She has an appetite and quite an attitude.

She's finally receiving the proper care she needs, however, I'm not as familiar with iguanas as I am with other species. I'm doing as much research as I can to give her the best possible future.

Will the deformity interfere with her growth? Can you guys recommend anything or provide me with tips? Thank you in advance for your help!
