:Yeah right TT, every time we have met ya seemed pretty well organized. I always appreciate your comments and support, hows the rehab on the edbs going?
Yeah, but I still drop my chopsticks and have reflexes too slow to play those shoot'em up computer games that my housemates are addicted to. LOL
Two EDB's in rehab now, one is pretty much ready to go and eats voluntarily despite a missing chunk of tail and broken ribs courtesy of a twit with a shovel. He just shed this morning in fact, and he looks quite good. Getting this little guy back up to par took many months of assist feeding and medication and an operation at the vet clinic to take care of his tail. Did I mention that I really hate twits with shovels?
The other EDB just came in a few weeks ago and is totally emaciated, just a skeleton. Probably a habitat displacement case; poor thing obviously had nowhere to go and nothing to eat. I'm doing all I can for the little guy, but I can't say how this case is going to go yet. I hope he'll make a full recovery. I've pulled them back from worse than what this animal looks like, but it takes time.
Some folks from a zoo out of state who have an excellent vet on staff are coming to visit in June. If they want some Easterns they'll probably go home with these animals so I can make room for the next batch that needs vet care.
