Lethargic and has no appetite?

Postby Ericgee29 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 5:55 pm

Like the title states, he's very lethargic kinda just basks all day with his eyes closed (Droopy like).Appetite is non existent, I have had to force feed him all bugs just so he does not loose any weight. I'm giving him oral calcium as given to me by a vet for two weeks now and changed his uvb to a 10.0 instead of a 5.0 I had for four months. My concern is he has seemed to gotten worse since the vet visit two weeks prior. I'm worried it's pinworms or coccidia but he seems to be pooping fine with no runny poop just normal looking. He is about 50-55 grams and nearing 9 inches about 4 months old.Is that a normal weight and size distribution for his age? Basking temps are about 100-115 depending on where he is on the log. 70-75 on the cool side and warm side is about 80-90 degrees.

I would take a stool sample in just to be on the safe side- could be the weather / time of year- mine has been very sleepy but if he is losing weight I would get a stool sample in
