Sick Frilled

Hello everyone!

I've got a sick frilly on my hands. He was eating a bit when I got him, but has quickly deteriorated - the other two are doing great. His symptoms are as follows:

- skinny
- some unshed skin patches
- lethargic
- dark color
- no appetite
- stools are runny and very yellow
- scratches at his head
- frill looks a little "crumpled"

I've separated him from the others as I don't want them getting infected, and also their activity was stressing him out.

My experiences with Vets in L.A. have been disillusioning. Time and money spent, when it turned out they didn't know much about reptiles, except maybe iguanas. If anyone can recommend a really good vet in LA, I'm all ears. Likewise if anyone has experience with emergency remedies for these symptoms, please tell me about 'em - I've got some Panacur on hand, and I 'spose I could force-feed him.

Thanks for any advice,

Michael
