Turn for the worse

Hi --

Just as quickly as the spiny that I rescue was recovering she has suddenly taken a turn for the worse. Her shell cleared nicely and now her feet, head and jaws have all this (what appears to be white skin sloughing off of them). I am sure it is yet a second occurence of her fungal infection. Her nostrils are plugged with this as well and she has stopped eating. (I suspect due to the fact that her nostrils are plugged). I have switched her to a Nolvasan bath. My vet here (not a herp vet but she has dealt with a few fungal problems in turtles -- suggested the Nolvasan bath. Also -- if she does not eat soon suggested some lactate ringers under the skin. I can do the injectible stuff no problem. Just wondering if anyone might have any additional suggestions. I know these little guys are not always the easiet to keep especially when you get them in such a terrible condition to begin with. I will not give up on her until she breaths her last breath.

Thought a Flyriver would be a real hard one to keep. Piece of cake compared to these guys.

Anyone's added assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Steve
