I will give those a try this week.Hello Damian,
You are welcome, no problem!
The vitamin powder is fine, it is most likely not the culprit for drying him out. The calcium powder
sometimes can be too much for them, if too much is used for feeding, etc.
If he doesn't like the butternut squash, try acorn squash or even sweet potato, he might like that.
Yes, this type of issue is pretty common in reptiles. Try to increase his oral fluids some if you can.
Let me know how he is doing!
I actually was able to get him to the vet yesterday. The blood work has just come back and his uric acid levels are 13 and white blood cell was 11,000 or something. They said it was quite high and quite high uric acid level.
I am thinking it could possibly be very early signs of gout? The vet wants to treat him with a fluid injection and some antibiotics. The antibiotics doesnt sound right to me. If his kidneys seem to be having issues antibiotics dont sound right. Do you agree?
I am also thinking about really lowering his protein intake. What do you think? He is drinking water but it seems i may have to keep him on the syringe. He also isnt interested in tart cherry juice. Are there any other options? Im going to post pictures of the blood work when i get it later today or tomorrow. Unfortunately this vet is only open 9am-noon and 230-330 daily.
I appreciate any advice and insight you may have
