Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell- Nice to meet you. I am sorry that you are having trouble with your pet; I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you.
Please let me know when you are ready to begin.
Sorry to hear that you are struggling with Aria. Do you have a heat lamp and broad-spectrum UV light for her? Do you have a basking area? Are you dusting the crickets?
That would be great!

Thank you so much. Yes, she looks very gaunt and dehydrated. And note how flat her skin looks (no color). I would recommend that you take her in for an examination, treatment with Vitamin D and Calcium injections, and deworming. The veterinarian will also be able to give you recommendations on diet and husbandry. Please make sure that it is a veterinarian who specializes in reptiles. You can go to vetlocator.com to find one.
I am so sorry to have to recommend this. The good news is that we should be able to get Aria back on track.
You are so very welcome.
Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any more questions regarding this problem or any future concerns.
I am here to help!
