Well, sadly, despite all the medication and TLC, the injured Pink Zebra Beauty female that I recieved is dying. It appeared at first that the antibiotic and antifungal medications had stopped the infections as the smell seemed to go down and she was eating. But she stopped eating a few days ago and has been having problems moving about even before that. She staggers and falls over. I am noticing a smell again - the split had seemed to be healing but it is opening up again. Strangely it is dry, no oozing. I can see what appears like fungal or infection "blooms" under her abdomenal skin. I feel so bad for the poor thing as she seems to be distressed and in discomfort. I'm just not sure what to do for her at this point. I actually talked to them at my vets office and they said that they didn't know anything to do beyond giving the meds.
