Yeah exactly i think its really knocking her out. she’s been sleeping almost all dayAw, poor Ivy. She can't understand what's happening. I do think I'd hold off on the meds. and concentrate on hydration and then nutrition. It seemed like she was starting to do better but now she's on a powerful drug that is knocking her out from your description.
Ok I’ll stop them this is all so sad and confusing ughYes it's safe to stop. It's not like antibiotics that are clearing up infection, those are the type of meds. that you need to take the full prescription. Gabapentin is simply an anxiety and pain med. ,they can be stopped anytime. The problem with giving meds. to pets is that they can't tell you if it's making them feel sick or dizzy or make their heart race or slow down, etc. But Ivy was just starting to get better it seemed and she has yet to gain her strength.
Update: i just gave her a little water. She’s been sleeping like this for hours. She went into the darker part of her tank and the temp on that side is 80F, she’s completely avoiding light/heat. I will let her rest.Might just be her reflex because she's been through traumatic events. A trip to a vet is terrifying for many animals. Just let her rest like she was after her initial illness , she was starting to recupe so hopefully she will just need rest.
Your basking bulb what brand is it?Yes she’s still hanging :’)
Just fed her water, at some point she got excited and bursted wide awake with her big eyes and started to chew on the syringe then she fell back asleep lol. So at least I know she’s still in there! Trying my best to take good care of her, really
Was worried about her temps bc she felt cold, she was in the cooler area on the succulent the whole day so I just put her in her bed and covered her but UVA above her so she can think she’s still in the dark but heat up a little again
But also noticed watery eyes as she was closing them? Maybe its just regular water as I’m assuming they’re eyes are kinda like ours and not completely dry? No signs of anything in her eyes besides that or any goo etc - also not sunken, i think Saturday’s eyes were the scariest they went so deep in her head super duper sunken
