And if anyone is curious the vet bill was:
$101.50 USD for emergency exam
$35.81 USD for ivermectin 1% injection
TOTAL: $137.31 USD

I was prepared to pay much more though, because I thought it would need more than a shot.

Poor guy, all this at his ripe old age. I hope the maggots are gone but I'm shocked that he was given a shot of Ivermectin. It can be harmful and even deadly to reptiles. Hopefully it was not a strong dose. Poor guy, best wishes to him.

To my knowledge he used half of the recommended dose to treat mites in bearded dragons, so maybe that's why he still seems pretty down, just doesn't feel too good from it.

Hello,

Poor thing! I hope he isn't in any pain.
The Ivermectin really shouldn't have been given, but I hope that he will be alright. Try to
keep him as hydrated as you can, to minimize toxins from the Ivermectin. I really hope
the maggots are all gone.
Let us know how he is doing.

He has a follow up Friday with a different vet, he isn't eating much at all and I will continue to mist him as much as possible. He isn't acceptjng the baby food on his tongue very well either.

Hello,

I am so sorry he isn't doing real well. It is that ivermectin affecting him. Can you get some
activated charcoal to get into him?
Also, you can get some parsley, cilantro, basil & oregano mixed together for help with some
detox.
Keep him around 80 in his tank overnight to help boost his immune system also.

Let us know how he is doing.

UPDATE

We just got back from the vet. She was very experienced and thorough. There was actually a few other dragons there.

She believes he has heart disease due to an extremely abnormal heartbeat. We elected not to continue with testing due to his old age.

I was given a can of wet food and critical care to mix together and syringe feed him (.5m 3x daily).

We didn't have a top on his tank like we should of and due to us living next to a horse farm a house fly layed eggs in his nose. We bought screening and velcroed it to the top of his cage. All of his lights are under the screen as not to burn it or block out UVB.

Hello,

Sorry to hear your boy has some heart issues. At his age, that can probably be expected.
I'm glad the vet was good & had some experience.
How is he doing today?
Did the vet give you A&D canned food for him?
Please keep us updated on him. I hope he is feeling better soon.

He sadly passed away last night. Thank you everyone for being so helpful and supportive. I just wish I took more photos and didn't keep putting off entering him in the calender.

Aw, I'm really, really sorry to hear this happened to your poor buy. :( He had a good long life with you, I know you must be devastated. I hope your heart heals soon, it's always a huge empty spot when a beloved pet dies. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy.

Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
