Well every lizard may have a different attitude when I had to force feed mine I get something like unsweetened applesauce and put a little on the mouth then soon as he licks it I put a little more to his mouth and he’ll began to eat it.Some people recommend forcing the mouth open which can damage their jaw,teeth,gums,and tongue so I don’t force feed that way it might be painful to them.

Okay ummm.....how long is he suppose to take the medication?he’s very healthy so has he ever stop eating during shed?if so do you think he’ll be okay without food until he’s finished taking he’s meds?but he needs to eat because he needs his calcium.if he’s used to eat with tongs you can trick him like I do mine.wow this is difficult to think of ways to get him to take his meds lol.
