It's been six weeks past Ursula's Ovariectomy surgery to remove her ovaries and the deformed eggs inside. For about 5 weeks before that and ever since her body is dark brown-black with some dark spots between her scales (not mites, not blood, but crusty brownish-yellow). And she is very dehydrated although she drinks and eats just a little bit every day.
She is very restless and has a very poor appetite even post-surgically. She is so restless that she spends all day scratching at the wire mesh on her cage.
Now she scratches so much that she has no claws left on her fore paws and the toes are infected.
I have been giving her medicated baths every day for 20min. She hates to bathe so the whole thing is a real fight.
Does anyone have any ideas how I can help her heal better? Eat better? Get less dark?
