Hello,Customerresponding to your message regarding Freddie, know you are worried, I'm very concerned as well. Anorexia in reptiles indicates underlying illness. Please soak in warm water at 95 degrees, use a thermometer for 5-10 minutes 3 times day, be careful not to drown. Put under basking light and warm up to 95-100 degrees, use thermometer, as if basking in sun for 30-60 minutes 3 times day. Please send photos and video. We will discuss further when you reply.
I've already done all that.
Good, please send photos.

Photo helps, Thanks. Freddie is flat with eyes closed and neck extended. List of possible causes is long; Low Calcium crisis, respiratory infection or pneumonia, kidney disease, other.
Jeez thats alot
Take 1 teaspoon of Calcium powder and mix with 1 tablespoon of filtered water, use a very small rubber spatula to open mouth and give 1-3 drops of Calcium liquid every hour
Goal is to keep alive until seen by a reptile veterinarian. Use ARAV.ORG and go online to find reptile veterinarian and make appointment. With Covid and holidays, may get an appointment in 2 days or 6 weeks.
