Smudge looks bloated (has for about 3 weeks)

Recommended Posts

Actually, I think it would be a good idea to keep feeding greens to keep the gut working.

Sharon: I already started mm's. Do you mean to feed greens with the mm's?

I am feeding her about 4-6 pellets at a time. I think I will do this 3 or 4 times a day.

Yes, that is what I meant.

Smudge is back outside in her own 300 gallon pond with bubble bar. She definitely perked up in the pond. She is only eating about 4 pellets of mm's at a time (before stopping to chew) and has no interest in spinach anymore. I will be feeding her 4 times a day...so she will be getting about 16 pellets total.

Here is her latest video from the pond:

Thanks.

Smudge has been eating about 20 mm's per day. She is pooping a lot and looks great. Her poop is mostly white or tan colour...even though the pellets are darker. Is this normal for mm's...is their poop lighter coloured than usual? It is thick like normal poop, just a different colour.

Thanks.

I'm really not much of a poopologist. Maybe someone else can comment.

Update on Smudge - She is finished with her 14 days of mm's and is back in the big pond. She looks so much better now...thank you everyone (especially Sharon) for all your help :).

Here is Smudge before treatment:
