Dude, you got ripped! I'm no Vet but I learned a few things. Here is what I think it is. They might have had a Protazoa infestation from just living together for five years. Very common. This untreated can cause a suppressed immune system to not work as good as it should.(stress) Other G.I.track disorders can follow. Sometimes they will eat BUT not as much. Anyway,without getting real involved the ONE med. he/she did not give you was Metronidazol.The one you need most! Also they will need to get back a normal gut floura because it was surley killed off with Amikacin. If a Vet doesnt chime in here with info.doses ect. get with me by email victortoise@bellsouth.net and we'll get-er-done. You should'nt have had to go through all that. Get them to eat some yogert or even pull some weeds out of the yard with the roots (little dirt is perfect but just a touch.) Or Ben-a-back (ssp??)for birds. Keep'em hydrated. Of cource we could be going down the wrong rd, but I always start from the poop end. Dust is bad too in captivity even though they are arid critters. Best of luck. Vic Morgan
