Rep: DanMeat is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Internal bacterial infection: how long to fridge?

Our beloved Sherbet is in the fridge right now full of antibiotics from the vet because she has an internal infection

I'm worried she will starve, she hasn't eaten in a week and won't eat in the fridge.

I've read on the forum that she might need to stay in the fridge for up to a month. Is that correct? Won't she starve?

Default Re: Internal bacterial infection: how long to fridge?

How long you fridge for depends on the individual, and the situation, so it's hard to determine. If it needs to be in the fridge for long periods just watch for body condition. If it starts to lose a lot of weight you may need to consider taking it out of the fridge.
Do you have a chiller on your tank?
