    He should be fine the reality of it is that you are running out of option so unless you found the scent that works your last resort will be trying to brumate him to try to kickstart his metabolism, you can also try to assist but it's not easy.

    I would try more scents, just like the one I described above, the one I get the best results with is vienna sausage, than it would depend on body condition, I have assisted hognose but usually those were non starters that never had a meal so brumation was not an option
