    I have a Tokay Gecko, I rescued from a pet store. It is super skinny. I'm so scared she's not gonna live. What can I do to make her eat? This is my first today. I have had a leopard gecko that I rescued and nursed back to health for a lady and I currently have a beardie. I have never had a lizzard this bad off. I really want her to make it any home remedies to get her to eat. She is going to the vet tomorrow I just need suggestions on trying to get her to eat.I attached a pic to show how skinny she is. I'm praying she makes it she is so gorgeous. I got her yesterday.

    How about placing her in a ventilated plastic container with a layer of wet paper towels in the bottom to help her hydrate? Spray the insides too. Place this container over a heat mat @ about 84*F for about 1 hour. If you don't have a heat mat, a low wattage bulb will work. Monitor the temps. Keep the container no warmer than 84.

    If she won't eat bugs, try Oxbow's Carnivore Care from Amazon. Some vets carry it. It's a powdered all-in-one food you mix with water.

    Thanks for the help. Apparently I got her too late. 😭
    She passed away last night about an hour after I posted. It breaks my heart that somebody would let such a beautiful baby get in such shape. All I can say is I gave it my all. I loved her and kept her comfortable.

    You're welcome. I'm sorry for your loss. May she rest in paradise.

    Here's a rose for both of you.
