    Sure! I edited my post with some info on injectables, and on an easy way to set up an induction chamber. One might be able to purchase 2 cc of isoflurane from a human or a veterinary hospital.

    Little update: I am still doing treatments on Boots. I have tried feeding her and she strikes at the cricket but does not actually get it. I can't tell if she is striking to protect herself or not because she stands up tall looks like she is in threat posture it could just be because she is still wonky from the molt and catching it is hard. Really hard to tell. I did put her cork bark diagonal is in her normal set up and she has been doing great in that.

    Good to read she's doing okay. Refusing food could also be because it is too early to feed yet ;)
