Hello there. My name is Jenniffer and I am desperately seeking advise on what to do about my sick monitor. Blue, our 6 year old monitor has recently (in the past few weeks) become quite lethargic and refuses live food. His bowel movements have been limited if at all. He does eat raw meat and hard and par boiled eggs. We recently took him to a local vet that specializes in exotics but we are becoming quite frustrated at the lack of info we are getting from him. Blue had an overnight stay at the docs and during that stay stool tests, radiographs, bloodwork and was force fed food and laxatives. I spoke with the doctor and he said that Blue had a huge b.m. during his stay but that there were concretions in his stool that seemed excessive. He also informed me that a second radiograph revealed more concretions higher in his digestive tract as well as gas pockets that he was worried about. We love our pet beyond reason but cannot afford to go forward with surgery without more information. You seem to be extremely knowlegeable from your site and I was wondering if you have seen these symptoms in other monitors or other reptiles and if you might have a clue as to what may be going on. I would really appreciate any info you might be able to give me. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
