He LOVES it. Keeps going to his water bowl. Wondering if maybe the diarrhea from his medicine dehydrated him so badly it caused him to stress. We’ll see if drinking helps. I’ll keep a very close eye on him, but it seems like he’s already doing much better.

O.K, great ! It's good to take the bowl out for the rest of the day ,just in case he gets TOO much or it goes down the wrong way . Sometimes when the guzzle too quickly it can come back up. Then tomorrow you can put it back in and see if he'll take some more.

Great that the honey helped. I agree, raw unpasteurized honey helps everything basically lol!

Calorie dense too so hopefully it gives him some energy.

Alarming news. Got home and there appeared to be blood everywhere in his tank. I have absolutely no idea what could have caused this. There’s no cuts anywhere in his skin, and his vent area did not have any blood. I cant tell if it’s diarrhea with blood or just straight blood. I’ve tried looking in his mouth, and I can’t see any blood. I don’t know where this could have come from. I’ll post pictures before I clean everything up. He was starting to feel better and drink more water, and now I am really worried about him. He seems perfectly fine otherwise though and still has energy. Just seems to be black bearding and doesn’t look happy. Is internal bleeding as a result of something major? Somethings definitely up but I don’t even know where to begin.

This is a picture of the pool of blood that I found. It was right by his water bowl (removed because it also had just a bit of blood in it). Thinking the blood might have come from his mouth. There is a tiny bit of blood surrounding his lips, but it wasn’t too much. Any help is appreciated.

If it was on his lips then he must have regurgitated. What color is the Oxbow supplement , was it possibly that ?

Unfortunately the Oxbow supplement hasn’t come in the mail yet. Still waiting on it, so it can’t be that. The probiotics are orange, but they aren’t that dark. None of the other products I have given him (baby food, pedialyte, etc.) have been that color. I picked it up with a q-tip and it smells like blood and is somewhat thick, but as of right now I see no reason as to why he would have bled that much. I have looked in his mouth and there doesn’t seem to be any blood or any signs of mouth rot or anything else that could have caused this. I have cleaned up all of the blood from him and his tank, and he’s definitely still very active. I just really don’t know what this could be. He’s still blackbearding and obviously very uncomfortable.

It might be a small amount of blood mixed with water baby food, etc that caused this color diarhea. If it happens again see about getting an xray or blood test. Do you have a good vet now ?

Still unsure. Haven’t been able to visit them, as the “best” closest one is now 3 hours away. Going to give them a call. Theyre my only other option right now, as I’ve tried the other few vets in the area. I’ll see what they say, the least I can do is call and see.

Quick update for this morning. He did actually poop this morning, and it was completely healthy with no signs of blood in it. I think the blood yesterday may have been a regurgitation, as there was a bit by his mouth and absolutely nothing on his belly or vent. I took a look in his mouth multiple times, and there’s no signs of mouth rot, so it’s not bleeding gums or teeth. I don’t know why he would regurgitate blood, but that’s what I have to go with for now. I’ll call the vet now and see what they think we should do.
