Get a bottle of Pedialyte from the drugstore. This is for babies who are sick and need to hydrate. Take the boxie out every day and soak him in the Pedialyte (warm it up a bit). You can also get a jar of baby food...infant carrots. Add that to the Pedialyte. Let him soak in that for 15 min. a day. Keep the temperatures in his enclosure up in the 80's. Keep the light's on to mimic the Summer daylight hours.
I am doing this right now with an Ornate that I left out too long. She usually come's in for the Winter before it gets cold. After a week of this she's usually back to her old self. I have done it with hatchlings, since a friend on another forum told me about this and how good it works.
I've never hibernated any boxie under 3 years of age. This is just what works for me....not saying it's written in stone.
