MBD - I assume you mean metabolic bone disease. That takes more than one week to develop. I hope the monitor's diet has been appropriate to provide all the nutrients it needs.

I really can't say why the monitor is acting this way. I don't have that much experience with lizards, just turtles. If he's that weak, force feeding could be deadly as well. A weak animal doesn't have the energy stores to process food well.

If you don't have a vet that can help, at least check with other lizard owners, check online for information (but be careful since not everything online is that accurate). I would say for now, keep the lizard warm and hydrated till you can get help.

I'm so sorry. I surely hope not but sometimes an animal just reaches a point of no return and it doesn't recover. Don't give up until he's actually gone. Keep looking for the answers.
