    Seizure in My Tokay?

    so lilo will run from me and avoid me, but for the last two days when i finally catch her she throws her whole body into convulsions and locks her jaw. does this sound like a seizure? what do you guys think and what should i try with her, only reason I'm handling at all is checking for progress and cleaning the tank, also stitch is only a week older and noticeably larger, and healthier looking, i plan to separate for as long as possible later tonight, but just want to know what you all think, temps, humidity etc are within a degree and a percent of the caresheet, so i don't know whats up, just don't want to risk losing her, she is awesome, thanks in advance!

    I wonder if it could be over supplementation or lack of supplementations like calcium or multivitamins!

    You could always have the blood checked for this and even get a fecal done to rule out parasites!

    Re: Seizure in My Tokay?

    actually its funny you say that. i just read somewhere else with almost exact problems that it was a lack of calcium and d3, so we are going to see about bumping those levels, and when she does have a bowel we will take it in for sure.

    I wonder if offering a small amount of UVB would help! I know that they are nocturnal but i wonder if they should get a little bit, It may be worth checking out!

    If it only happens when you grab her I would say its thrashing trying to get away from you. If it was a medical condition it would happen at other times.

    it did one final time, i walked in last night and she was stiff as a board and gone, still not 100% what exactly was going on, and never will now, at least i still have stitch.

    I'm really sorry for your loss. From the sounds of the symptoms it could have been MBD or the result of a concussion if Lilo had ever fallen in the tank.

    Re: Seizure in My Tokay?

    im not sure if she ever fell or not, but stitch is still doing great, so that leads me to believe that it may have not been food or calcium issues, but who knows, at least she isnt having seizures anymore right? and thank you guys for your condolences, it means a lot to me.

    Re: Seizure in My Tokay?

    That is so weird! Did you try to google it? If Stitch was stressing Lilo and maybe she wasn't getting all that she needed!
    But a fall also makes sense!
    Again sorry about Lilo!
