Even w/ the temps being down now hes still not eating on his own? Thats not good -- he cant afford to loose weight hes too little-- try feeding him some baby food - squash --- see if he will take that-- at least till the new UVB comes- I am hoping that will straighten that issue out --- are you keeping him hydrated ? That too will help along w/ the poops-- is he going poop? And I would look into switching him over to dubia roaches --- they can be ordered on line and kept in a tote or 10 gallon aquarium- the one hes in now would be perfect --- they are way better for him and are easy to keep - feed them carrots squash apples strawberries --- they dont like greens much -- crickets tend to give parasites / worms and they dont last as long - dubias you can keep for a long time --

You put forth a lot of effort to make a nice home for him. The Powersun bulb should be fine heat wise on one side of the tank unless the room he's in is hot as well.

The shot probably caused him pain, was it given on the side that he now has trouble with ?

No they didn't, they didn't even mention one. I will call and get one done. Think maybe parasites may be the problem?

Parasites can cause low appetite but not the problem he's having with legs not moving right on one side. Was that the side that the vet gave him a shot ?

Also, the shot was given on the other side. Which he did favor the rest of the day but seems to be better now. Still not eating. Seems alert though, just alittle sluggish. Still problems with the one side. Can move them slightly but doesnt seen to have much control of them.
