right know she will not eat on her own. Is there a way to hydrate her other than a bath? Cause i tried last week and she... was not happy.
You can try adding a little bit of non-citrus fruit juice to the water and that might entice her to drink it. Otherwise, as Karrie mentioned making sure the slurry is a little more watery and dripping water on her nose.

Hello,

I agree, try to upgrade your tube bulb, when you can. The Zilla tube bulb is ok, but, not real strong
compared to either the Reptisun 10 or the Arcadia D3 12% tube bulbs.
How is she doing today?

Im having trouble finding a light to fit the hood i have (I can't afford to buy a new hood).

She isn't coughing or anything and her teeth are looking alot better however her fat pads are still depleted and she refuses to eat anything.

How long is the hood?

Hello,

How is your girl doing tonight?
You can definitely use the hood that you have now & just match the length of the tube to your
hood so you don't have to purchase a new hood for the light.
Has she eaten anything today? Since her fat pads are sunken, you will need to try & get some
nutrition into her somehow. Do you have baby foods at home you can feed to her?
