    Here's a photo of him from today. I think he looks better already. The stuck shed on his foot has come off! He's also been eating meal worms and crickets. He's a cute bugger, I love his little hands.

    So Oscar decided to not be that smart and ate some moss. He successfully passed it, however had a mild prolapse. My boyfriend put him in a sugar/warm water soak and rubbed some petroleum jelly on it before he went to sleep, when he woke up the prolapse was gone. He took him to the vet this morning, and brought up the issues we've been having of grey poop, his limbs, etc.

    They're giving him calcium glucose, we're going to do a stool sample when he has his next poop. We will be doing bloodwork if they find nothing from the stool sample, as it's $200. Oscar has basically no toe bones, and no nails, due to the lack of calcium. They said the grey poop may be related to a parasite. They're skeptical on him having crypto though, but will do the test to rule it out.

    I hope that he thrives in your care. It's obvious he is very much loved. ♥

    Submitted a poop sample on Friday, they said no news = good news.
    Do all parasties show up on poop samples?

    Sometimes Cryptosporidosis is inactive. Crypto tests are often separate tests. They are performed by swabbing a gecko's vent.

    I want to provide an update on Oscar!

    IMG_20191108_213359.jpg

    This was a photo in November, just like 2-3 months after we got him. I don't have any photos of him later on currently, I'll see if I can find one. You can see he improved a lot just within a short time. Sadly, Oscar passed away a little over a year after we got him. He was an old man... somewhere between 10-15 years old. He lived a fantastic year with us.

    Thanks for sharing that Oscar has passed away. He was a handsome gecko! May Oscar rest in paradise.

    Here's a rose to ease your pain.
