    Aww, that's so cute! I've always found that to be true though, reptiles may hate what you're doing at the moment (with medical care) but they almost seem to realize you're trying to help, or else just aren't capable of "anger".

    Teaches me to wear one of my favorite shirts when medicating a gecko.

    Cleo wasted all over me tonight. I feel terrible. She was really unhappy.

    I plan on trying to medicate in her tank or in a container next time and not restraining her in my hand as much.

    Again, she calmed down soon after, but was visibly upset when we medicated her. I know it has to be done, but it still stresses me out to know she is stressed.

    I feel your pain...I'm having to give my almost 16-year old dog injections, & at the vet tech's suggestion, I tried to sneak up on her while she was "eating her yummy dinner", poor thing. She didn't appreciate it, but she went back to eating...with some of her hair standing up. So sorry sweet baby...and sorry for your Cleo too. Responsible pet-parenting isn't always easy, is it?

    I got the cytology report from the vet today on Cleo's mouth scab.

    Consistent with what we thought. Some bacteria only. Nothing more serious and the bacteria load was not very high.

    The vet continues to think she bit something and it scabbed and never completely healed right. Some sort of trauma.

    She said from now on, most applications of the chlorhexidine oral treatment can be put on her lips and she will move it around with her tongue on her own. No need to stress her out more.

    Also, as of yesterday, she is done with the metacam.

    Further, if the scab comes back, and quickly, the vet can prescribe and oral antibiotic for her. However, we are both hoping that this the oral rinse will be enough.

    I've been spoiling Cleo and she's been getting hornworms and wax worms to make sure there is something in her stomach with the medicine. I'll go back to her mealworms mostly diet today.

    That's good news! You're an awesome snarent, even if Cleo has had some doubts lately.

    I think she will prefer just putting the oral solution on her lips versus rubbing it inside her mouth. Glad I asked the vet!

    She doesn't hold a grudge and neither do I (assuming there are no stains on my shirt ).

    She took a hornworm from me last night after medication.

    I'm glad it's getting easier to medicate her...it's so hard to do something we know our sweet pets hate, even though we know it's necessary for their health.

    Hope your shirt washed out okay too... Sometimes it just goes with the territory.
