My Simi passed away yesterday

I posted this last summer how my Simi was coughing or sneezing. He was prescribed antibiotics. He seemed to perk up for the most part but never really seemed 100%. We took him in again last Tuesday. They drew blood and found his white cell count was elevated extremely. We are heartbroken once again since we lost Atlas our rescue beardie. I totally feel like we failed the poor thing.

So sorry to hear about Simi! So hard to lose a pet! Sounds like you did a lot to help these little guys. In humans, a high white cell count sounds like an infection..maybe the same for reptiles? I'm sorry that the vet wasn't able to save Simi!

This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
I don't own Swordtail anymore. He owns me
Swordtail is being the chonky turd he is
Hmmm.... May make a dress for her lol
