hey guys,

think my BD is loosing the battle to keep his life, he was originally unable to use his legs for some reason one day and has not eaten since, this was 2 weeks ago, he has been to the vet twice and gotten injections for vitamin and calcium boosts. have tried force feeding but he just spits it back out. he has now turned a yellow ish color and his beard and bottom half of body is gone black. he is just a pitty. i have a vet appointment with him in 2 hrs and hopefully vet can do sometin with him. really worried as he has been an integral part of the family and if he goes we are gonna miss him so much. till the vet im gonna bath him in warm water for 30 mins and then wrap him up in a warm towel and cuddle him to keep him comfortable just incase he goes :cry:

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
