 3 Foot American Alligator Sick??

We rescued a 3 foot american alligator from some idiots who didnt take care of him right. He was in a 52 gallon tank and being fed once a month when we got him. He was doing better, but now he seems to be sick. He is threw up a partially digested rat and it looks like he may have threw up fecal matter... Or maybe he pooped while he was puking, I dunno.... Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be wrong and how to fix it?? Thanks! :)

Well there could be plenty of factors like parasites and you should take the gator to a vet who works with these animals or possibly your closest zoo, depending on where you live. But first things first is to get him checked for parasites, especially if he wasn’t fed properly and they didn’t change the water.
