    Either Bob does have liver failure or there is a combination of too little too late in treating his infection and I have determined that it is time to end this.

    At this point he has no energy and his eyes were closed with his head down and in much the same position as when I left for work when I walked in this evening. He looked up when I "made" him by touching after seeing that he was breathing. Shortly after that he put his head back down.

    I will be calling the vet when her office opens in the morning.

    I think the vets actions were too little too late. I was too late in getting him to a vet. The vets knowledge of igs is too small and her first dose of ABx was shall we say more conservative than I am either politically of monetarily (OK so I am a cheap-wad getting out of debt, as I sit at the computer I can see my breath right now because I have not turned the heat on outside my bedroom or bathroom yet).

    Mark buddy I am sorry to hear this but I was afraid that it was coming. If it is any comfort you are one of the most conscientious keepers I have ever known and you have gone well above and beyond what many would have done in this situation.
    The tales of "The Blob" will be sorely missed.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to you in this sad time.

    So very sad to hear this Mark, but I understand you are doing the best you can for him. As Merlin said, you are a terrific keeper and you did all the right things for him.

    He had a great life with you and my thoughts and prayers are with you and Blob.

    Take care.

    As hard as it was to make the decision I think you made the right one. He will no longer be suffering.

    Mark, I am really sorry to hear of your situation. I know how much you love Bob and this must be really hard on you. You were one of the people that did everything they could for their iguana, so you should take solice in the fact that you did everything you could for Bob and provided him with the best captive life that you could offer. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Bob bud.
