    Update on Astrid

    We do not have the oxbow critical care here. We barely have doctors for exotic animals. Should I blend food and grass in a blender with some water and give it to her? No on the probiotics as we can't give them to her since she is not eating. Both oil and antibiotics are given through syringe

I am giving her water with a syringe...

    New cage and update

    ok so its a gnawing stone...not a mineral one... some months ago she went through that stage where she chewed on everything but now she seems to be ok with her cage.of course i keep an eye on her all the time and i check the cage regularly so if i notice chewing issues i can take action.
