I bought her at an expo and I knew she wasn't doing great. She looks thin where her backlegs are. I've been soaking her in pedialyte water. I took her to my vet today and he gave her vitamins no vitamin a, fluids via iv, and we're giving her some panacur. She doesn't eat much she's 11 inches and weighs 6 pounds is there a way to entice her too eat? Any help is appreciated thanks

I'm sorry I have no help to offer. But I just wanted to say that I hope everything goes well and that she's okay. Good luck

Is she being kept in a nice warm and humid environment? Good luck! Hopefully she will get better.

She's in my reptile room which is a walk in closet with kept at 85 ambient temp she has a ceramic heat emitter for her basking spot in a 40 gallon trough for a hospital enclosure with reptichip bedding. I bought her as a gamble I have three healthy red foots in a large outside enclosure I just wanted to see if I could get her to pull through she has definitely not been kept right by who was selling her.

You know what you have to do to try and help her, including proper temperatures, humidity and diet/UV lighting.
I just wish you all the best of good luck in getting her better!
