Lunar is almost back to her normal self again.
She is still on the antibiotics for the next few days but she looks a lot happier in her self.
Her appetite is back to normal and she hasn't lost any weight at all.
I am still giving her the pro-biotic in her water and Solar is getting the pro-biotic as well.
He is fine and showing no signs of whatever made Lunar ill.
Lunar must be such a strong little lady, she seems to recover very well.

! Whatever she had must not have been contageous.
Hope all is well,

Lunar is back to her old self now, her appetite is back to normal.
She eagerly takes food from my fingers again and is emptying her bowl of greens every day.
We think it must have been a bowel infection which has responded to the anti-biotics as the vet couldn't see any obvious parasites under the microscope.
Solar has shown no signs of whatever it was. They are housed in seperate tanks and their dishes are labelled with permanent ink so they don't get mixed up.
I also use anti-bacterial hand gel between handling each of them which probably helped.
