I’ve never owned a gecko, so while I have a few ideas, I’m not exactly an expert.
Do any of my followers on this blog have any answers for this person?
There’s a pretty good chance that her fear is based on stress from the change so she should be okay.
Give her a few days to calm down and after that you can grab her and set her down with you. Instead of holding her right off just sit with her outside the cage.
You have to closest supervise but something I’ve noticed they tend to enjoy is if you kind of mess up the blankets on the bed they like to climb over it and burrow through it.
That also will help her to become familiar with your scent which will calm her down and should make her trust you more.
It would be dependent on what types of parasite she has but if you know what they are I can do some research for you.
She may continue the hunger strike because they tend not to want to eat when they don’t feel well or are uncomfortable or stressed. Even just the weather changing will make Elmo refuse to eat for a week or two.
If she absolutely won’t eat and you are afraid she is going to get too weak you can try giving her chicken flavored baby food, it smells strongly and they tend to like it. And even if she won’t eat it she will lick it if it’s on her lips so she’ll be taking in something.
Sometimes they won’t eat when they are dehydrated either so make sure she drinks enough, if she won’t drink enough on her own you can mist her and have her lick it off
