Cartilage can, and does, dry out if exposed. This is a particularly prevalent problem in any injury to a wing. The major injury may have been treated, but the cartilage remains exposed as the wing heals, but dries quicker than other tissues. Cause: Poor ichor supply, usually to wing after scoring.

Symptoms:
The Dragon will be distressed, dehydrated (see Dehydration for further details) and parched, the hide tone greyish. The Rider may also be delirious.

Treatment:
1. Suture vessels that are ichoring (see 'Deep Threadscoring ', Major Wounds , and Suturing ).
2. Remove ichor from a healthy Dragon, and use this to treat the sick Dragon (see Transfusions ).
3. Apply ichor directly to the dried out cartilages and joints as often as is necessary.

Recovery:
With dried-out cartilages, recovery time depends on the severity of the wing injury, but will generally be at least a few months.

Notes:
Dehydration (see Dehydration for further details) should be treated as quickly as possible.
