    Exclamation Diarrhea After a Pinkie???


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Warning for graphic photo- i.e. poop.

    My male had his first ever pinkie on Tuesday, he loved it and it went down no problem - but he's passed this around an hour ago, and yes, it smelt as bad as it looks...

    On a scale of 1-10, how much do I panic? To add- he isn't underweight, refusing food or lethargic- he's completely alert and full of his usual energy.

    If anything, its getting him to stop eating / begging for food that's the trick...

    Is it possible he was still digesting his prior meal *13 small/medium dubias* and the pinkie having bones and being so much bigger, required more energy/space so this was an "emergency cleanse" to focus on it???

    As an update to this:

    After passing loose stool 2 more times, I took him to the vet. She was pleased with how active and alert he was, and that he was still super willing to eat.
    Everything came back okay in terms of parasites and that night, he passed a semi solid poop. I informed the vet, and she was happy to put it down to either a bad pinkie, or a bad digestive reaction to the pinkie, his poop has now returned to normal

    So sorry lil man, no more pinkies for you :'3

    Thanks for your update. I'm glad your leo's poops are now normal.

    When we don't know the answer (or don't see the post) no one replies.

    Here are other feeders for your leo:

    Thank you

    All of my geckos are on Dubia roaches, for my two fat tails its the only thing they'll take xD Fussy buggers.

    The only reason I tried him with a pinkie, I was away for a long weekend, and sent them to a place that boards reptiles... unfortunately, when I dropped them off, the owner was out so I had to leave all 3 with their son... and they got forgotten about and where left in their travel tubs

    Thankfully, what was meant to be a 4 day trip turned into a 2... cause even my cave gecko was cold, so my fat tails where absolutely freezing, took 2 hours of cradling them to my chest wrapped up in flannels with a hot water bottle to get them warm again... my female, bounced back fine.

    My male, it triggered his winter into summer 'feeding frenzy' so I was advised to give him a pinkie to fill him up. Never again and needless to say, they're not going back to that boarders :'3
