Post-brumation, fussy, 4 yo dragon

Duchesse woke up yesterday from her brumation. :blob5:

Before she went down I already had trouble feeding her greens, due to a (now treated) pinworms infection. Today I tried to feed her a little, but she won't go for anything I leave in her tank. I was wondering if you had tricks to offer for her to eat her veggies willingly? Especially her greens, as the carrots and peppers I can get her to taste and eat.

I'll have another fecal test done this week just to be sure, but until it's done I just want her to gain back her appetite. :(

Oh, she was not happy with the platter, must not have been a good enough variety. :lol:
No, they often are not hungry for a while after brumation. No need to worry, this is normal.

I wish :lol: I gave her peppers, carrots, blueberries, and in the end I ended up having her lick some critical care. Same today. I got her some butterworms too, so we'll see how it goes.
