Customer Question

She had a partially undigested stool the other day, then stopped eating. Last night she was very lethargic, and today she is very pale.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the reptile. What is the reptile's name and age?
Customer: Spooky and about 7 or 8 months
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Spooky?
Customer: She's been very healthy up to this point, her basking temp is around 100 degrees, and she eats very well.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
