My Name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years and have worked with Reptiles for ober 40 years.
Do you have any regular light bulbs in the house?
Do you live near a Walmart?
We need to get the enclosure warmed up. Iguanas will freeze up when cold and 47* is enough to do that. I am in Fl and when temps drop the Iguanas fall from the trees.
Try to add some bulbs tonight to get the enclosure warmed up. You can get bulbs ar Walmart as they have Infra red bulbs in their Pet dept or you can pick up a regular Halogen bulb for warmth.
I would like to see you get your Iggie into a soak and gradually add some warmer water until the water is at 85 and soak him for 20-30 mins. This will gradually warm him and not shock the system. It will also hydrate him as they can absorb fluids through the Ven as well as skin.
Please hit reply for any concerns. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
Wanted to check in on your Iggie and see if you were able to warm him up and get him feeling better. I hope the information was helpful and he is doing better.
