He has been to two vets now. One emergency and a reptile vet. They have listened to his lungs sound good. Did a blood test and it showed dehydration and a mild case of kidney failure. They have told me to keep him on the baytril for 25 days.

He is around 13 years old and I'm not sure if this is his lifespan. It is so sad to see him so sick.

His home is about 1-1/2 foot tall by 4 feet long aquarium. The basking area is around 125 and the cooler side is around 95 (right now because of his illness) otherwise it's around 85. The hydrometer reads 10 and 15 in the cooler side.

The vet has suggested be give him two soaks a week for the dehydration. Also one gave me a Flukers repta boost insectivore and the other told me to use Oxbow Critical care. After two weeks of internet search I've been using the Critical care.

Right now I'm able to get him medication down and about 1/2 of a small syringe of baby food with the critical care mixed with pedialyte. I'm still putting in his normal food with hopes he will eat it.

Any help would be appreciated.
