Recently I posted that my 21 yr old ig would not eat. I had just moved from an apt where I had lived for 19 yrs. I got a response from Roger saying to get some water into him and to use a syringe which I did.. I made sure he got lots of water, pureÚd baby food (prunes and waxed beans etc) and lots of blueberries. I had come to the conclusion that it was just age and relocation stress but I could see something around his vent that was hard. Well, today he finally pooped and peed and it looks like the block was a little pc of wood or something.. I could see what I thought was oats and then I thought sawdust. So so happy that he finally "went" as I was getting prepared to say good bye.. Only fellow reptile owners can relate to the loss of such a pet.. I am so glad that he will still be around for another while.. He seems to be adapting to the move now too.. meantime I will keep feeding him some fibrous foods till he is eating on his own completely .. which is not too far off.
