Lizzard: constipation

As with many reptiles, constipation may lead to a chronic weak lizzard, with decreased appetite.

Treatment consists of a rectal lavage, to wash out any feces, urate mass, or other material.

Just remember, this is a stinky process, and if the lizzard is this big, a very heavy process!
