Ratties, Cats and Crested Geckos
On March 16th I brought home a new dumbo boy from a pet store. I noticed he wasn't eating or drinking and quite scared. I also noticed he was having diarrhea. So i quickly took him to a local vet hospital. They (guessing) said it was probably just from the changes of home and sent us on our way. He continued having diarrhea and i noticed blood inside all of his stools. I took him back to the hospital where he seen a different dr and i insisted on them doing a lab on his droppings. She said it was negative and again sent us on our way. I finally got him to warm up to me and start eating. He loves Cheerio's. So now that i knew he was eating ok, but still had the same diarrhea with blood every single bowel movement is bloody, and smells. so bad. I took him back again and asked for another lab to be done and requested it be done with human eyes instead of a machine specifically to check for Gaurdia parasite. I know its hard to find and must be done with human eyes. They didn't want to but still said ok and came back saying it was negative. I suspect it was a machine they used again in the lab. I just want him to be ok and i want to move him into the big cage with my other boys but until I know what's causing him to have a yucky tummy, I cant do that. He needs others. they are quite interested in him and he is not so much interested in them. He acts scared to death of them. even squeaks when they sniff at him near by. I wanted to breed him because he is the first dumbo boy i have for my 2 female dumbos. He is cream colored and silver tipped. (he always looks dirty) I love him so much but dont know what else to do. The vets had no explanation for why or whats happening to him. Can anyone help me with this? I fell in love with him at our first dr visit, while waiting he started Boggling and it was the cutest thing ever.
