    Female looking bloated or swollen

    Soooooo its been a day.... I gathered myself and calmed down before I phoned the vet that saw Leon last weekend and she is currently on leave until next week Wednesday. The receptionist sounded so busy that she was hardly listening to what i was saying which ultimately annoyed me even...

    No, no not banking on it at all, im very concerned about him and looking at all my options here. I dont want to make another "mistake" like the first vet visit, and to be honest I'm very annoyed by the whole situation with the vet and the parasite flush. That's why I haven't contacted her I...

    I had a breeder come and have a look at Leon, and he agrees with what you guys have been saying Re the vet visit. He also did a little experiment by showing Leon my female (their enclosure is divided and he can't see her) and he went the most amazing colours!! I've never seen him have these sort...

    Yeah sorry, the conversation progressed from the female to the male. Because he's not eating, hes not pooping. So can't get a fecal to test

    Female looking bloated or swollen

    The problem is hes not "going" i can see urates in his enclosure but no brown poop. I'm guessing because he's not eating hes not pooping. I am keeping him well hydrated and even sat with the mister bottle misting into his mouth. The vets going to ask me if I gave him that 3 day course. 🤷🏻‍♀️...

    Yeah I guess your right, I only want the best for my two, and thinking a vet would know her stuff well..... it won't happen again thats for sure. On that note I didnt give him his 3 day course of drops.. after everything I read I just decided it was a no! My male still isn't eating so it is a...

    Female looking bloated or swollen

    OMG!!!! Really?? I didnt know that 😱😱 She said to me that because they eat crickets/bugs and insects its good to do a parasite flush every 6 months?? I honestly can't tell you what exactly she gave them, as the invoice only says parasite flush small 🤬 As mentioned to you in a previous...

    Female looking bloated or swollen

    With the new enclosure and all the live plants I have no idea how to bring the humidity levels down ? There is a side mesh on the left as well as on the door and one at the top by the lights. As for the lights im not 100% happy with the way they are set up and will be changing that very soon...

    Female looking bloated or swollen

    She is very active during the day and moves all over her enclosure, she eats extremely well and has not lost her appetite at all! If anything I think if I gave her more she would eat more. Can't find any poop in the new enclosure, have looked with a torch and have moved a few plants but the...

    On this note, she ate like a champion this morning like always. I even gave her two small superworms as I was trying to get her out of the enclosure to take photos and she practically pounced on me to get to the supers, it was actually really cute 😍
