Since I got Mika, about a month ago, she's been a picture of health(aside from a sore arm from being a little too rambunctious and some scarring on her head from a picky pet store employee). Her BM's have been frequent and nice and solid, I couldn't have been happier until the past two days and more worryingly, today. Yesterday she was reluctant to drink water but I was okay with this as she ate some sprayed lettuce and her regular crickets. However today she didn't poop all day(until like 5 minutes ago and I'm about to put her to bed) and won't drink any water. She had a nice warm bath and ate like she normally does, when she finally pooped it was runny and there were red lumps in it. This is where it gets REALLY frustrating. The food she is eating is exactly the same as what Lagu is eating and he just pooped on our comforter yesterday(although today, nada but that's nothing unusual for him). She has sufficient heat, cool spots, uv, etc, she has everything readily available to her the only thing really of concern is their substrate which, if you read my introductory post, you know I've been having a really hard time with, they are both on Crushed Walnut(yeah, I know, I'm working on it). She is acting perfectly normal, just like herself, cute, inquisitive, running around and hugging her driftwood soaking up the "sun", climbing her background, just loving life. Tomorrow when we get up I am heading to work to pick up some non-adhesive shelf covering and making my boyfriend strip their houses and just lay down paper towel until I get home. What should I be looking out for before I dish out over $200 for a vet visit with a non-exotic vet(Newfoundland sucks), and probably another $100 to send poop to PEI for testing(again, Newfoundland, -blows raspberry-)? So, if she had parasites, wouldn't Lagu have them as well? What else should I be looking out for(signs of impaction)? What else could be causing red poop? I'm not even entirely sure it's blood. Could the crushed walnut just have hurt her tummy, if so, is it possible this could heal? She's pooping, I'm just not happy with WHAT and how OFTEN she is pooping. Am I being an over concerned mommy? Gosh, I've had horses colic before and it wasn't this stressful. Sorry for writing a novel, -Melissa, Mika and Lagu.
