Hello! A couple months ago my cats ripped a hole open in the top of my viper gecko cage, and one of my females got out (I have 2 females and one male in a 15 breeder). We couldn't find her for a couple weeks. When we did she was thin and dehydrated, but alive and active still. I put her back in the tank and made sure to feed them several smaller meals, dusted the crickets almost every time, and misted down the glass a few times a week so she could drink. At first she seemed to be getting better. She gained a little weight pretty quickly, and hasn't lost that weight yet, but she's still thin. Her hip bones stick out a lot. Her tail is about half as big as her tankmate's tails. I've watched her, and she does try to get the crickets, she's just having trouble actually grabbing them. It's been about a month with no sign of improvement. I'll try to get some pictures up. Is there anything I can do? Thanks so much!!
