    Unhappy sHEila... again...

    He's prolapsed again Giving him supportive care and a sugar bath. It just seems it's always too much too soon... I can NOT feed him, even for his medication. That means, even if he retracts again this time, I have to completely separate him from Jelly Bean and keep him in a hospital tank until who knows when. I just don't know what to do-- I was told by various sources to fast him 7, 10, or even 15 days (as long as you can) but I always had to medicate him with the wax worm for the cocci once a week, and things seemed fine; after 8 days fasting (not including the wax worm on medication day) it was recommended by the vet who did the fecal testing to begin feeding him earth worm and wax worm in small amounts, which I did every other day. Apparently not a good idea. sHEila's the ONLY one to have a normal BM and yet the BMs are what's prolapsing him Everyone else has diarrhea still... but they aren't prolapsing either. I'm scared to death what will happen when they do get normal poops! I looked up Dr. Frye's office for advice on the medicating if sHEila manages to withdraw the prolapse again, but they are closed until Monday at 8:00 A.M. and I have an appointment with the eye doctor that morning I'm going to email him anyway (should have done it sooner but everyone's been down with a nasty bug) and hope he sees it at any rate.

    I never had this problem with the PCFs... I'm just heartsick.

    I'm sorry. Maybe under the circumstances it would be best to stop medication until he gets better. You'd better ask a vet about that though.

    I just sent an email off to Dr. Frye and messaged his office on Facebook; someone on there already msg'd me back and let me know they'd pass it on to him and see what he suggests.

    They said they weren't sure if Dr. Frye would be available this weekend, then they suggested this link to another frog doctor... The frog doctor I went to the page and found out the frog doctor has passed away Think I'm going to be sick now.

    Can SHEila absorb his medication through his skin at all? I'm sure he'll be fine fasting till Monday, and I'm wondering if there is another way to administer... I guess the vet will have to answer that... Another probably bad idea, perhaps a laxative to keep stuff liquid? I wouldn't try anything without talking to the vet first! Good luck though, I hope he feels better soon!
