    Default Rescue Girl

    I was what is everything I can do to help this girl? I have a friend that works at petco and when this girl came in she adopted her out to me. She had stuck shed on her toes (Im soaking her in the pic and got it off) her spine and tail are twisted and she has what looks like scaring around the mouth. Heading to the vet on friday too.

    The back and spine are either MBD or pretty serious MBD. This is from lack of calcium and im pretty sure you can only treat it with feeding dusted instects.

    other people will have a bit more information to help you

    The poor thing. I'm glad she's with you now.

    I'd be interested in knowing what the vet visit was like and what they recommend.

    I was told that she was being fed fruit baby food and that is all she would touch. That is definately not true. She took to CGD as soon as it was in front of her.
