Okay, I have done everything I know and everything that all you guys have suggested and she has managed to still be alive today. But, I have to get her to eat, I came to the conclusion that parasites were the cause of her not pooping (not impactation), with the help of fluids and baths, liquid calcuim and baby food she started pooping enough to know that it wasn't impactation but the parasites (which was medicated) that was making her so sick. Problem now is that she is so weak now that she wont eat and I don't seem to be getting enough in her to make her any better. Everyday I give her pedialyte (as much as she will take from a syringe) do the same with baby food. Just the other day though I found a emergecy kit for malnouished and dehydrated reptiles, its suppose to give them what it takes to get them back up, the maker of the product is Fluker Farms, does anyone know anything about this product? Please let me know if you do and please please let me know anymore suggestions on getting her better. Remember in my last message I was just about ready to give up because I just couldn't stand to see her suffer, I hung in there and somedays it just breaks my heart to see her not feeling well, but I am not willing to give up until I have exhausted all resources and possibilities, and then I hope I really don't have to make that decision to put her down, that she will make it for me. So keep them coming I'm not giving up and I know everyone of you that use this forum have big hearts for these animals like I do.
And to everyone that has written in lately and had to watch and see their uro dieing my heart goes out to you. (There does seem to be alot of postings lately of problems with uros and them dieing). Thanks again so much for everyones help, I need more though.

Lauri
