Polo's health problemsOur Rankin's (Lawson's) Dragon, Polo, has been listless since mid-October; he came our home in September, and back then he was frolicking in his cage and would eat at the first sight of a cricket. Lately he has diarrhea, bloody stools, often meditates, and has a decreased appetite, etc. Now when the crickets come, they don't want to eat at all. That’s going on. His weight has dropped from 62 grams to 57 grams in a month, which makes us very anxious. We feel sorry for her, and We're wondering if We're not raising her properly, so We're looking like online and so on for any information that will help me. We tried everything to do something about it, such as making the busking light stronger, placing lava stones, and making the hiding place bigger, but it was still getting weak. We decided to take him to the hospital to discuss this with a specialist.
Polo's first hospital visitAlthough the doctor was not a specialist in exotic animals, the doctor did his best to examine me with a book in hand, taking x-rays and palpation. As a result, it was clear from this visit that there was nothing wrong with the bones. We just don't know why Polo's not feeling well. In the meantime, We was given lactobacillus, supplements, and a syringe-like device for force-feeding. The doctor said that if Polo enlarged his stomach with force-feeding, his appetite might return. https://emeraid.com/vet/emeraid-carnivore/
