    What was prescribed for the redleg? I would just continue using what the vet gave you and if its not working bring him back there and you guys may want to try something else from the vet. Remember even with human antibiotics you have to give it a couple days to actually kick in and start to work and I noticed you just brought him a couple days ago so it may not have kicked in yet. If you went to the vet and they gave you something you don't want to start mixing home remedies with it because it could counter act against the meds possibly and then he really wont get better.

    im also worried about the impaction mostly.. for the most part his redness is clearing up but he hasnt gone to the bathroom in so long and he hasnt eaten... so no calcium either... is there anything at all i can do about that? iv heard people say laxative and stuff but i feel like with red leg maybe i shouldnt?

    keep temps warm and sometimes they can go a week or so without pooing, when they do it can be hidden away in the coir, it's easier to find when the substrate dries but stir it up and have a look. just give him a bath every week or so to help

    Update: after 14 days of oral doxycycline and warm baths everynight and daily changing of his cage and occasionally carnivore care zeus's redness is gone he doesnt need his cage cleaned anymore hes moving more and more active and for the first time in months hes eating on his own again. He looks so good compared to how he was a bit ago. I kept reading that the medication probably wouldnt work and the vet wont do much for redleg but he seriously is doing alot better. The last thing i need to be sure and for him to go to the bathroom..hopefully soon
