I got a neonate retic 1 yr. ago that had been doing fine. About three months ago it had 2 rats then went into shed. It then did not eat for an entire shed cycle and has become gradually and unusually unresponsive and rather flaccid. It does become more responsive at times and with handling, but the muscle tone is rather poor. It is now getting rather thin as well. The breathing, tongue flicking and last bowl movements were normal. My husbandry is not an issue as I have several retics that are doing fantastic.

I am curious if anyone has experienced similar findings?

Could I get a differential diagnosis based on these signs?

Any insight is GREAT!
