Getting quite anxious now with Esmerelda not eating. We've had her 12 days now. She has also pulled her bandage off(got stuck) so has to go to vet again tomorrow. She hasn't eaten any crickets in around 3 days! She's had greens yesterday and two Morio worms, 3 morio worms the day before but no crickets. Only gave her 1 morio today as don't want her to just wait for these. Put the crickets in today and she just scarpered to the highest point. Really don't know what o do anymore :cry: any suggestions would be greatly received.

Give her a couple more morios and check with your vet he may be able to give her a shot to boost her appetite. As long as she's getting veg and some protein you're doing OK, but have you tried cooling down the crix in the fridge first to slow them down?

She's not even eating her worms now :cry: she's gone off her food altogether. She has got her foot in bandage all the way up her foot now so is probably uncomfortable and fed up. Just really worried. She only had one morio today. Can u buy roaches in pet shop? Or that would be great if u could send me some. :D
