I don't think that one person trying to save a pitiful animal is going to encourage his business. Some people's hearts tug at them to try to " save" a sick animal that is right in front of them, and that is their personality....can't change that. At any rate, I agree with keeping him quiet and stress-free, very limited handling, etc. As your vet said, he may not make it, but the hydration that he was given does seem to have perked him up , since he's dashing around the cage with a black beard. So you definitely need to cover up the cage, beardies have good eyesight and he will be able to see even through a tiny spot left uncovered. He may start to eat for you yet, and I do hope he does. You could also try a little chicken/ turkey/ or greenbean baby food via syringe, mix a pinch of calcium w/ D3 and a pinch of powdered vitamin. Your intentions are good.....although he may not make it,hopefully he will come around.
