Okay so wed. I was given a sick iguana. He had a big abscess on his jaw and was taken to the vet by previous owner they gave him clindamycin and nolvason, the abscess resolved but still just trace swollen jaw.. |
The guy free ranged him and no heat and was force feeding him for the last month or more.
Enter me on Wednesday, I have him in a big sterilite tub with a 90 degree hot spot. I took him to the vet and was given Flagyl and some calcium.
He also has an RI(crackling a popping when breathing), tail rot(about 1/3rd of the tail) and possibly MBD(mishappen and broken toes, spine is not straight, and of course the jaw is still a bit weird.This just me, the vet had no idea and didnt give me much hope.
He is still very lethargic. I give him his meds morning and night with lots of juice(Ive added some crested gecko diet to the juice for some nutrition)..What else can I do?
