I did notice his eyes twitching too. Poor little guy :( I'm wondering if it is possibly something neurological going on here. I'd much rather let someone else chime in on this

I'm not sure how much longer he's going to be hanging in there. Outside time usually made him super active to where I had to chase him a few times. Now he's been sitting here for about 45 mins. Pavement isn't hot either. It's not a hot day, but I thought some sun time might help. He's just been sitting there, but at least he's holding himself up. I've got some worms around that he looks at, but that's about it. It's getting harder to feed him, but I'm still trying. We thought about taking him to another vet, but it's a bit more expensive. It's just hard to see him keep going down hill and not being sure why or how else to help. :(

Poor baby :( I'm so sorry you are going through this. I know it has to be tough.
A second opinion may be good just to be double sure there is nothing more that can be done

I didn't want to make a completely new thread.

We finally came to the decision to have Izzy euthanized. It wasn't easy at all, but he had just given up. Vet didn't have many solutions, and he just wasn't gaining no matter how much I tried to feed. It was wearing the both of us down. I thought it would be easier than when we had to do the same to our 16 year old dog, but I was so wrong! Lol

I just wanted to thank you guys for everything!!

I'm sad to hear that. It's a very difficult decision but if he wasn't gaining then it was probably the right choice so he doesn't continue to suffer. You did the best you could to help him and I'm sure he appreciated it.

I'm so sorry....it takes so much out of us when we see them suffer and we try so hard, just wishing and wanting them to be better. :( All my sympathy to you, and yes, you tried everything + did your best.

Thanks, guys. I'm just glad I got to spend the time with him that I did. It's so weird seeing the enclosure lights off! But I know it'll get easier

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
