Are you the only person on this board ;D Kind of a slow one isnt it. What do you soak the bread in? He isnt even moving now.Just sits there even when I pick him up.I called the exotic vet and they cant get me in till after next week.But I could see a regular vet.Dont know what they can do though, she told me she didnt know anything about iguanas but probably could take an xray to see if he is impacted.Cant get a fecal if he doesnt poop...
Im tempted to take the iggy back to the petstore today.Im going to give them a call and find out what they fed him, and see what the policy on returns is.Im pretty bummed out, but thats what I get for "rescuing a petstore animal"..Poor guy, probably sending him to his doom..I pretty sure they will only trade but they didnt have any other iguanas.

Well, lets just say I'm the most frequent poster I soak the bread in water but someone else had the idea to soak the bread in watermelon juice (Gwen also loves watermelon) - that sounds like an awesome idea but I haven't tried it yet. It doesn't sound like he's in very good shape I would soak some bread and gently open his mouth and put some in his mouth. You can open his mouth by gently pulling down on his dewlap. Hopfullly he will respond to that. If he is still in the same room as the birds I would suggest putting him in a different room - even the bathroom if he can't be moved to any other room - that's generally a quiet room.
I hope you don't bring him back he will surely die in a place where they think it's ok to have a baby iguana in a tank full of baby snakes. I suppose you might have already made your decision since I'm posting a day later. Have you decided to send him back or keep trying with him?
If only I had something to eat. . . . . mmmm pumpkin flowers
