My leopard gecko is almost 13 years old and I have never had a problem with her not eating. A few weeks ago I noticed a sore on her mouth and brought her into the vet. She had red rot and he gave me oral antibiotics and some betadine to put on it. The scale from it fell off a couple weeks ago and it appears to have healed. The vet said she has healed well but she still won't eat. She wasn't eating when she had the sore on her mouth but the vet said that was because her mouth hurt. She seems to have healed now but she still isn't eating and her tail is getting visibly smaller. She eats mealworms (usually newly molted) in a dish dusted with vitamins. Any suggestions on getting her to eat? I change the mealworms out each night as well. Thanks for any and all help.

Julianne
