Re: BRB Losing Scales?

More update photos of Morzan...I'm really at a loss of what to do here. I was going to take him to the vet Friday since it was my next day off (my last day was a weekend so I couldn't take him then) but when I went to feed him, he had absolutely no interest in food (the first time ever), and he's looking kinda faded. It's hard to tell if he's in shed or not...he's looking milky-ish but his belly isn't pink and his colors show up mostly normal on camera. Even in shed he usually shows some interest in food.

Do I wait and see if it is a shed cycle? Do I take him to the vet Friday anyways? Do I make the hard choice and end his suffering?

Here you can see the milkiness.

Doesn't show up too well but you can see there's a bit of discoloration but no pinkness.

In this photo I was actually able to capture how much his ribs stick out.
