Observing the progress of Polo's health problem

It's been about a month since Polo's last visit to the hospital. Polo's weight has been steadily increasing and he now weighs 67 grams. He seems to be in good health, running around the house after we gave him a sunbath. As a side note, polo goes into a very alert stance after it poops. Is this a dangerous thing to do in the wild world? The smell of polo poop is quite strong. Does the smell increase the likelihood of being attacked by an enemy, so the instinct is to leave in a hurry after doing so? Now, back to the topic. Although Polo seems to be getting healthier, there are still many things to worry about. He's still very quiet in his cage. And he's not in the busking spot much, and most importantly, he continues to have diarrhea and the occasional bloody stool.

Selecting a second opinion

The doctor at the last hospital I went to was very good t, but he didn't seem to know much about exotic animals, so we decided to take Polo to another veterinary hospital on a friend's recommendation. First of all, the new doctor told me, "Once a lizard gets sick, it rarely gets well right away. He said, "Once a lizard gets sick, it rarely gets well right away. It seems that Polo need to recover their physical condition patiently. And I told the doctor about Polo's diet these days, that crickets and supplements are the mainstay of his diet, and that he's been feeding them alternately.

As for the diet, he said, we shouldn't have a day where only give supplements. Supplements do not provide enough energy. Anyway, the doctor was told that it would be better to feed them artificial food because they would lack energy.

Polo's food

Polo underwent x-rays, stool tests, blood tests, and palpation. It was very sad to see the blood being drawn, but I tried my best to keep Polo calm from going wild. It's for Polo. The doctor managed to get enough blood to test. There were some happenings along the way, such as the Polo going wild and the needle bending.

Test results show dehydration

The test results were "dehydrated". There were no bones, white blood cells, or other abnormalities, but he had low water content in his blood. It's good to know the reason. We were given a medication to condition Polo's tummy and an anti-parasite medication. For the time being, we had to dissolve the artificial food and mix the medicine in it and force feed it. As for the diarrhea, we will determine the right amount of food while changing the amount of food. Also, don't force them to give water just because they are dehydrated. Then the doctor told us to visit the hospital again in 10 days. We hope Polo's feeling better. In the end, I was impressed that the doctor had recovered so well in a short period of time. Thanks to Polo's life force. Let's work together.
