Hello, I have a 5 year old green iguana. About a month ago she got out and we found her two days ago. We're planning a vet visit but in the meantime we're just trying to make her comfortable and nurse her back to health. She came back very skinny and weak. The first day, all she did was sleep in her warm bath. Now she has barely eaten and refuses to stay in the warmth under her UV lamp. She falls over and can't seem to move her arms and legs well. I don't know how to get her to eat. I force fed her a little but I'm still very scared for her health. I know the vet visit will help but I thought some outside feedback would be good too. I know the process of nursing her back to health will be longer than just a couple days but I'm so worried. Any advice and tips would be very helpful and appreciated.
