My desert iguana is dying I'm afraid. Vet not in until next

Customer Question

My desert iguana is dying I'm afraid. Vet not in until next week. Hasn't eaten for a long time (thought he was I hybernation). No poop found for months. Have crickits in with him. He lays and sleeps, sometime burrowing his head in the sand. I've bathed him in warm water twice a day past few days, but he will fall asleep in the water
