Default Hydrating sick leo

I have posted before about my leopard gecko, princess. He is sick, i have gotten him to a vet, however the veterinarians in my area are more proficient with horses and cows rather than lizards. I have some med's for him but he still hasn't has a bowel movement. He is looking VERY dehydrated and I am wondering if anyone can give me advice on what would be the best way to get him hydrated. Is it going to be okay if I do some diluted pedialyte and if so what flavor? Or should I do something more like smartwater so there are some nutrients but no sugar? I have been doing daily warm water soaks to try to help get his digestive system working but I have also noticed him hauling himself into his water dish during the day. HELP!
