Hi, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and I'm happy to help. Please stand by while I have a chance to type.

I am so sorry that your companion has you worried. Can you share a few pictures of your concern to our chat? I’d like to see what you’re seeing specifically.

I have not heard back from you, so I am going to share more information based on your original discussion. I hope that this is helpful. If you have more questions on this topic or need clarification, please reply back at any time for additional support.

I am incredibly sorry to hear that your companion is not feeling well. Anytime that an animal reduces or goes off of their normal food intake, we need to be concerned about underlying medical illness being the cause. These symptoms can be caused by many conditions including intestinal parasites, protozoan, bacterial or fungal infection, impaction, constipation, metabolic problems, reproductive problems, etc. For this reason, I would strongly recommend a vet visit. You can find a reptile vet by searching http://www.anapsid.org/vets/ and also http://www.arav.org. With the watery diarrhea you're seeing, I am particularly worried about intestinal parasites, protozoan and bacterial infection. Expect that your vet will want to run diagnostics like x-rays, bloodwork, fecal analysis, viral testing, etc. to determine the cause of the symptoms and then prescribe effective treatment.

At home, you can try soaking in warm water 2x daily up to the shoulders for 30 minutes. This will encourage a BM and once the bowels are moving this can also strengthen the appetite, too. You can encourage eating by hand feeding and also offering pureed human baby food in flavors like chicken, turkey, etc. A small amount can be placed on the snout to be licked off. Another option is to syringe feed directly into the mouth (go slowly). If they refuse, it's time to see a vet. Your vet is likely to recommend diagnostics to determine why your companion is unwell, which will likely include a fecal analysis and bloodwork. Your vet may also recommend x-rays. Once they have determined the cause of illness, they can render proper treatment to help your companion recover.

If finances might limit your ability to obtain care for your companion at this time, please visit this link where I have comprised 26 links to help with financial aid, financing and fundraising: https://www.dropbox.com/s/o3mxuiqvbt8drjk/JAFinancialAid.docx?dl=0


Before we formally end our discussion, I want to make sure that we will both be leaving this interaction feeling like we’ve addressed your concern effectively. Would you say that you are comfortable with the next steps we’ve established together? If not, can you tell me how I can best assist you?
