Hi, Tifa has has this remaining piece of she’s stuck in her for, I wanna say, 6 weeks now.

Over the last two months she dropped 3 clutches of eggs and it took a lot out of her. She had some shed going but it really slowed down around laying time and I thought it would finish up when she was done.

She doesn’t look like she’s planning to shed her head aging so I’m worried it’s going to get completely stuck to her ear drum. She gets regular baths, I’ve used some wart wet q-tip to gently dab the skin. She’s well hydrated and getting lots of post-clutch vitamins and food. It’s kind of shrunk but staying stuck to the membrane.

Any tips? I just took her to vet twice recently. Not really looking to go again but I can if this seems like an emergency.

Thoughts?

Thank you!

If you have small tweezers you might try to GENTLY remove it but don't pull, if it don't easily come right out leave it be.
