Update on Misfit my not so starving lizard :D

Post by Body Thief on Thu Mar 29, 2012 5:15 pm

After 3 months of starving himself and bad vet visits with wrong treatment I ended up just crushing feeders up and feeding him with a syringe. He finally started eating live buggies a month ago. He eats almost everyday. I still wasn't sure if he was drinking on his own as he barely had any urate compared to poop so I started giving him water out of the syringe everyday just to be safe and viola!! I witnessed him drinking on his own last week Smile I had also thought he was getting mouth rot and found a good herp vet through a friend. I took him in a week ago and the vet examined him and he does not have mouth rot! yay!

So he is eating almost everyday AND now he is for sure drinking on his own...He has nice normal looking poop now!!

He was 29g when I got him then he dropped to about 23g and now after a month of eating he is back up to 29g! I can't wait until he fills out.

Ty everyone for your help and suggestions and all that good stuff along this journey :P
