A BIG THANK YOU!!

Postby MamaBlue3 » Tue Oct 08, 2019 5:06 pm

I just want to give a big thank you to everyone on the forum who gave me advice last week. I truly think you saved Blue now called Ellie by her new owner (my daughter, kids “swap” pets every now and then, they are all really mine lol!). These two pictures are less than 1 week apart and she looks so much better. She has been eating like a champ. Chasing her feeders and she even ate some bok choy tonight! I know she has filled out but i swear she’s grown some! So thank you again from me and Ellie![Click image to enlarge]

How awesome thanks for posting!
We love hearing the good side of things. So often people come for help and never come back to give us the results or the happy ending :D Makes my night when I see posts like these.

She looks 10x better in the recent picture! You should be very proud of yourself! :D

Is it ok to give her reptaboost a couple times per week for a bt longer just to be sure we keep moving forward? Also should I change to calcium w/o d?

Eating about 10-12 med to large size dubias a day broken into 3 feedings and took her first bite of greens (bok choy) since the whole ordeal tonight. We have put some in for her to have tomorrow while we are gone.

That's good- I would feed her other greens too like turnip collard and mustard- do you have nutrition website? Some others on here can answer about the reptaboost--

I was buying turnips. She wouldn’t eat mustard before but we will retry. Also giving her some apple and bell pepper.

Good that she's gaining-- you might try collard greens - I would only feed green pepper and apple occasionally
