It's time to take Don Iguan to the vet again.
He's not really due another visit for a couple of months, but he's been really docile and... slow... for the last two weeks. Plus, over the weekend, he decided he wasn't going to eat. Granted, he did clean his plate again this morning, and normally I wouldn't worry about a two day fast, but something seems off about his behavior lately. He just seems way too peaceful.
The other thing that concerns me right now is that he seems to be having a little trouble swallowing. No matter how fine I chop his food, it seems like at least once a meal he just stops and opens and closes his mouth for awhile, like he's got something stuck just a little bit in his throat and he can't quite get the food down. He always does, though, and eats the rest of his meal, but this is a new behavior that, frankly, scares the crap out of me. If there is something blocking his throat, I want to know!
So I'm going to schedule a visit this weekend. I might try a new vet this time. I found one a little closer than my normal hour-and-a-half drive. If this one is any good, it'll be a little easier on me. I think I'm also going to take in my Uro, Maize at the same time. He'll just have to have his checkup early.
