    What color is the inside of her mouth? Does her tongue move?

    It sounds like your AFT needs to see a vet.

    Please read these links:

    1. "One of most common diseases to affect leopard geckos is called mouth rot, which is where leopard geckos’ gums and mouth get infected with small cuts or pieces of food stuck in their many teeth."

    I just want to make sure that it is absolutely necessary for her to go to the vet. I had to take my pup in to the emergency vet last week that was quite expensive and my funds are falling a lil short. If its absolutely necessary I'll make an appointment with my vet I just don't want to go and have them say she's fine and come home with an 100$ vet bill

    I understand.

    Were you able to read both links I shared in post 12? Those links mention the problems you've been describing.

    Antibiotics are necessary to control infection.
    1. "Pus" is one sign of infection.
    2. Hard lumps inside a gecko's mouth aren't normal.
    3. Misty's lip line is abnormal.

    Well last night when I was able to open her mouth and have a better look I inspected thoroughly and saw no puss. I think the first time I was in a state of panic and couldn't see her mouth clearly. But now with a better look there is nothing odd about her mouth. The only symptom she has was the abnormal lip.

    Ok I am going to end up taking her to the vet, but my mom advised me to wait till next week to see how she is. Is this to long especially since that food was in her mouth for a week or 2? Im going to give her and her brother some crickets tonight and see if she has much of an appetite.

    Default Update: Bump on Lip


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi just wanted to give a update on how Misty is doing. She hasn't see a vet yet but she looks so much better! I dont see anything in her mouth at all and the bump on her lip is now half the size as it was. She looks so much better!. I am starting to wonder if it was never mouth rot. I know mouth rot needs to be treated with antibiotic in order to be healed but since I pulled the food out of her mouth she has only been getting better. Could it have been something else?
