Their old lady Nile monitor passed away mysteriously last night at home so they brought her in for necropsy to see if we could give them some answers. We found some incredible abnormalities indicating that she was a very sick old lady. She had Carcinomatosis (abdominal cancer), Dilated Cardiomyopathy (heart failure), and Hepatic lipidosis (liver disease).
She was rescued by this family from a horrible situation several years ago. Although she was very sick at the time of her death it wasn’t anything they could have prevented. We are glad that she was able to live out her senior years in the safety of a good home.
