I think you should leave it be. The older they get, the longer they stay in premolt. I have a tiny sling C. cyaneopubescens that went for a month an a half without eating. Don't worry, make sure there is enough water and just wait. That would be my advice, I am not very experienced tho

What size is the tarantula?

38 days is nothing if it's a juvenile/adult. And now take a big deal for anything besides a very young tarantula anyways

Depends- what size is it?

If it’s very small, it could be dead due to dehydration or alive. I own this species.
