Beardie

[Apalala] Still sick

Although there's certainly nothing wrong with her appetite, there's definitely still something wrong with my little beardie. The vet called yesterday and left a message to let me know that something showed up on the tests . . . or more specifically, things look pretty good overall but there were some concerns that she wanted to talk to me about. I called back and she was in an appointment . . . she called back when Jboy was on the phone . . . I called this morning and she's not in until the afternoon. I'm worried and have no idea what's wrong. So far the hand feeding and switch back to crickets hasn't made a difference. *sigh*

At this point, I'm just hoping that whatever did show up on the tests are easy fixes that I can do myself . . . I can't bring her in for anything major until I get paid again. :(

[Apalala] Phew!

Just heard back from the vet. It was the really nice doctor that I first saw with Apalala. I was so glad that it was him that got back to me because he's so kind. Apparently things look pretty good on her tests with one exception; her calcium levels are lower than they should be. Thankfully, that's easy to take care of (extra calcium frosted crickets!).

I have to keep an eye on her and bring her back in if she's still not poopin' but at least now my mind is at ease.
