Jog my mind here, how long have you been working on Herbie now? I know it's been a while but I also know it can take a lot of time and work. I believe it was at least 6 weeks before I could get darrell to eat an insect and then he would bite off the portion that was in his mouth and let the rest fall away.

Also, if you are giving antibiotics she is probably depleated of healthy intestinal bacteria. I would try to give some healthy culture such as acidophilus or if you can find the stuff that is made for reptiles that comes in a tube. I usually give just a tad of active culture yogurt as that is acidophilus bacteria. Just mix a bit in with the baby food.

If she's hanging in there you should too! If you aren't using warm soaks that my be a good idea too. If I remember correctly I would soak darrell until the water cooled and then fed a mixture that consited of mashed banana, yogurt, and strained lamb with just a little vit powder and thinned enough with pediolyte to be able to get it into a dropper or syringe.

Please forgive any typos here as the Dr has my drugged up to get rid of a major stress headache!
