I was just thinking about Pan last night. Thanks for the update.

I'm glad his jaw seems to be lining up better now.
I like AHBD's suggestion about the slurry. You could try really small bits of salad though and just see how it goes. Does he seem to at least be getting decent nutrition lately?

Hello!

How is Pan doing? I hope he is feeling better, he sure is hanging in there.
I am so happy that his jaw is healing up & isn't hurting him too much. I think the slurry is a
great idea so he doesn't have to do any unnecessary chewing. Is he still able to eat his
worms pretty well also?

Keep us posted on him.

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry I went MIA again, I had some personal issues going on.

Pancake's vet appointment yesterday went well, he was very calm the whole car ride there and at the vet's office. But more importantly... The abscess has gone down!!! :blob5: I have to supervise him for the next two weeks to make sure his breathing stays normal. He hasn't gained any weight, but his weight has stayed the same. I think he might be getting too used to syringe feeding, he ate a bowl of Repashy, but only if I put it on a spoon for him. If it's in the bowl he wont touch it :roll:

Here are the pictures I wanted to upload last week:

This is his jaw from the front. If you look at the tip of his nose and his chin you can see it's lined up a lot better than it was last month.

Side view of the fracture. That scab that was along his gum line Pan got rid of himself somehow.

Here he is taking some cilantro for the first time in months

And as for the mention on the vegetable slurry, I have been begging my mom to let me use the blender. She isn't going for it so far because the blender needs a minimum amount of food in it, which is above what Pancake eats and it would be a waste of food. Do you know of any decently priced blenders that work well for making beardie slurries? Otherwise, he seems to be happy with his Repashy right now. He's still eating his worms without any problems.

The last picture for you guys, is Pancake sending a blep for all of the support you've given him.

I'm beyond happy that he's getting better!! It's so nice to see him running around and getting up to his shenanigans again.

Love the blep pic! I bought a little $15 blender (looks like a nutribullet knockoff) that may be the sort of thing you're looking for. It's made by Hamilton Beach, and it was with the regular blenders at Walmart.
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

Hello,

That is a great update for Pancake, he is doing so well! :D
It looks like his jaw is healing up nicely. Since he is active & eating pretty good he must
be feeling a lot better.
I was going to suggest a mini food processor, or that magic bullit too to help process the foods
for him.

Keep us posted on his progress.

Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it.

I bought some escarole and try giving him a normal sized piece, he was able to chew it okay so I don't think I'll have to rip them into tiny pieces. Although, he doesn't particularly want to eat his veggies; I'm not sure if this is because he's been spoiled with getting to eat a lot of hornworms and silks, or if it has to do with him still not feeling well. Pancake has started to eat Repashy grub pie on his own (he won't touch the veggie burger one). In terms of activity he seems very up and down, two days ago he was wandering around his terrarium, but yesterday he didn't come out of his cave AT ALL until I got home from class (7PM), then he was suddenly running around like a rocket and had this massive appetite. It was strange.
