I am sorry to hear you are worried about Blackie. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I have been doing research, and can't find that crickets are poisonous. Is it at all possible he got into anything in addition to the cricket? How long has Blackie been like this?

How is Blackie today? Rebecca
