Ok so here is a website to find a vet
www.arav.org -- when you find one call them ask if you can drop a fecal off for them to test for parasites-- do not let them do an enema on him if you take him in - if you haft to wait to get a stool sample from him wait- no enemas they are too hard on them - it sounds like parasites-- improper lighting (the UVB) and crickets will cause them - if he has them they will put him on meds to get rid of them -

Get your car good and warm-- he"ll be fine in the car-- do you have a small petcarrier? If not you need to put him in your shirt or inside coat - if you have a carrier you can get some hand warmers from Walmart but make sure if you use them they are wrapped in a towel or small blanket type because they get hot- you can put them in the carrier- that will keep carrier warm -
Just make sure the hand warmers are wrapped in something- they last for 6 hrs or so-- put your stool sample in Ziploc and then fridge
