I got him from a pet store that had him returned by a customer because he wasn't eating. From what I understand, he was wild caught and may never have eaten in captivity aside from being force-fed. He will readily drink water from a spray bottle or a dish. He hides, and he's getting increasingly meaner.
I have given him worm medicine, which hasn't helped. I had one vet suggest he has mouth rot, but I can't see any evidence of it. I live in a very remote area and there are no vets that do herps. The vet I can use will prescribe and admimister something, but I don't know what to ask for. I suspect worms or parasites or something along those lines, but I don't have the expertise to know for sure.
Can anybody help? Is there an online vet I can contact or?
Here he is... this photo is older and he shows much more signs of not eating than this:
