He saw the vet this summer. He is loosing weight, lethargic, not eating.
We tried some interventions, changing lights, deworming, some antibiotics, some puppy food for the weight, aggressive soaking. He still isn't eating on his own. And even though my daughter optimistically hopes that his stools show he is improving, actually they are the puppy food coming back out pretty much the way it went in.
So today, I expect to discuss options with the vet. Come home, get my 14 yr old from field hockey, and discuss options with her. And then tomorrow, take him in to say goodbye. I thought the hardest thing I'd ever done was take my tail wagging oh so happy labrador in when he couldn't get himself outside to use the bathroom anymore. But helping my daughter make the best decision for her lizard may be even harder. It is going to be a very hard day.
