I know this is a silly question but it seems I can only get her to eat live insects at this point.... Bubs (my little 3 year old black star) and I are battling what we believe to be a serious fungal infection from eating moldy feed (has all the hallmarks of mycotoxicosis) but she's not given up the fight yet. She is VERY weak and has nearly stopped eating and is not drinking at all. I am force feeding her yogurt with some added vitamins once or twice a day as she can tolerate it. I also forced about 5 cc of water tonight, it was about all she could get down but she tolerated it. The one thing she is highly eager to eat is live critters. I dug up some earthworms from the garden which she chowed in about 4 seconds and going every time i would come back for me. She also ate about 1/2 of a chopped up hamburger patty today as long as I shook it around to make it look like it was wriggling. I went to the pet store, on the advice from the board for my previous post, and got 250 wax worms. She's eaten I'd say about 70 tonight. Is this too much in one sitting. She really loved them and I know they are high in protein. I hid them in a tomato to try to get a little extra fluid into her which worked a little bit. Question really is, how to balance the protein with fluid? how much fluid should she be taking in one day? She is starving and wasting away, only 2.4 pounds at this point, I did not catch the infection soon enough. Also , anyone know how much apple cider to give to combat a fungal infection?
