Exclamation Cotton Mouth, Lips eaten Away, Can't Eat

My betta has cotton mouth disease. She spazzes when she goes for air, and can't eat tiny pellets even though she tries. She is lethargic and her lips have been eaten away so her mouth looks flat from the side.

Do I euthanize?

SO desperate for answers.

Oh my goodness! I saw pictures from your previous thread. I'm so sorry :( I also saw from the previous post that you just noticed it yesterday? If it were me, I would probably go about another day or so to see if anything changes. Truthfully, I'd probably have to go about a week before I could talk myself into euthanizing. It seems like she is really suffering, though, and it must be hard watching her suffer. What a hard decision to make... Ultimately you just have to do what you feel is best for your girl.

poor girl. if you honestly think she has no hope, i'd euth her. it's heartbreaking to see a betta whither away to nothing. it really is. how long has she been like this? if it's only been a few days, don't give up hope just yet. sometimes, it takes a while for them and the meds to fight off illness.
