Thanks for your response. She was xrayed at the vet to make sure she had no broken bones or metabolic bone disease. She doesn't, but he said some of her bones are a tad light and look like they may be in the beginning of losing density. The doc recommended I get her a series of calcium injections, the second of which she will get tomorrow. She has a 3 month old UVA/UVB bulb and we take her outside very often to soak up natural sunlight. Doc claims the calcium injections natural sunlight should have her moving around more and being more active in the next couple weeks or so. he also said he wanted her at 95 or so. She isn't too keen on the heat but he says it will help her heal. I have done all these things and will try your suggestion at feeding her every other day to see if her appetite flares up a bit. We have tried putting the worms under/within the salad but she isn't having it.. What would you recommend as the most nutritious worm to feed them?
Thanks again!
