I can’t seem to get any help with this issue. I have a male Retic that wants to breed. He stops eating until he can, but I’m not wanting to breed them. As a result, he’s been fasting and just keeps on refusing food. I’ve let him breed once and he began eating like crazy afterward and stopped once he was ready to go again. He’s beginning to pass urates, which I haven’t seen him do in a long while, but he’s visibly beginning to lose some weight. He’s incredibly light. I’m unsure of what to do to get him to eat. I’ve tried moving him to a smaller enclosure, numerous types of food choices live and pre-killed, leaving his food in overnight, braining, and making sure his temps were good, but no success in getting him to take food.
I’ve exhausted all options besides assist feeding. Any recommendations?
