my little amel was the queen of regurge her first three months here. And has never had an unassisted shed. If it stayed in her that long, maybe she was too cool? Edana has puked up mice three days after I fed her, and when she did that, I noticed she was spending a lot of time on the cool side. So I did what maybe isn't the best, but I took her cool side hide away. She hasn't had a regurg since!
As for the partial shed, lock him in a plastic tub(don't forget a couple air holes) with wet PT and warm water for 30 minutes and all the shed will be off;) (hopefully) Sometimes the old skin will split where the lump was, and that can make it harder to get the back half off. I don't feed edana in shed, but the other three do well, some just can't do it i guess.
I took danny's cool side hide after several regurges while hanging out in it, so it wasn't the first thing i did, but it was the only thing that worked. And she has it back now, since she hasn't had a pukey in a few months, and I notice she "learned her lesson", because she always sits on the warm side now till her diner lump is gone:)
:I have a young corn, may 5 or 6 monthes and she is eating peach fuzzies (smaller than a fuzzie, bigger than a pinkie)
:i gave her two last sunday and the bulge stayed in her stomach for a couple of days. On friday she barfed up a little pices of mouse, maybe 1/2 inch to 3/4 of an inch long, I looked like mouse skin with a little bit of fur on when end and none on the other end.
:What could cause her to barf just a little bit of mouse? I dont know if its related but she shed only partially on thursday and barfed on friday.
:Any suggestions on what i should do?
