My 14 year old rose hair stopped eating about 10 months ago. It's still active and has a round abdomen. Seems to be healthy, but refuses to eat and I can't remember the last time it molted. I don't know it's gender. Any suggestions?

Rosies are notorious for going on long fasts. Someone posted here not too long ago about one that went over 2 years. I wouldn't worry much at this point. Keep the water topped off and offer food say, once every two weeks.

From what I've read on here rose hairs are notorious for for fasting and, as long as its abdomen is plump I wouldnt worry. Also if it truly is 14 years old it has to be a female. My suggestion would be to offer it food every so often until it finally takes something.

None, you can't force feed them per se. They know how and when to eat better than we do. It will be fine, just keep a water bowl in there.
