It has been nearly 3 weeks since Boris came to live at Gullringstorp. In all this time in spite of all the delicious plates of food offered to him, he has not eaten.
I’ve had several options: a warm bath
or a Calcium injection or Vitamin B injection.
I tried the warm bath with no results other than a lovely bonding experience with my new iguana.
Yesterday we took Boris to the vet. He had a full examination by a very competent herp vet. It’s great to know that our boy is in perfect health and condition. Boris was a great little patient as he was held and weighed and examined. I held him when needed, not thinking that he could bite me. He didn’t. He was great.
The vet decided that Boris was not in any kind of health danger because of his lack of appetite. He is still in the adjustment phase after his move to Gullringstorp. He gave Boris a Calcium injection not only to try and stimulate his appetite but to help him remain healthy while not eating. Calcium is very important in an iguana’s diet.
We were also given an assist feeding formula called Critical Care with all the nutritional needs for him. It will not only provide what he needs but may also assist in stimulating his desire to eat.
I was very pleased with our visit and feel that Boris could not have been in better hands.
He has a nice plate of food. I will wait and give him time to want to eat before giving the Critical Care.
