Hi everyone,

Thanks for all your replies. Gertrude has crossed the rainbow bridge tonight. We decided it was the best option. She looked way more declined when we saw her tonight than what she was like yesterday morning and that's with more medication, fluid and feedings.

The vet also did an x-ray again and both vets have looked at the results. The lungs were smaller and they found abscesses/masses in the tissue which is what's causing it. It is possible that this was cancer and was spreading.

My heart aches right now. But this was the right decision, especially when we saw her to say goodbye she looked like she was done and had tears in her eyes as well.
I am so sorry for the loss of your girl.

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?
