    Default My crested gecko won't close his vent.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My crested gecko's vent doesn't appear to have a prolapse or swelling, but he's had it open for a little over a day and won't close it. I'm worried about him and have been keeping the humidity high since he's been exposing himself like this. He hasn't been continuously desecrating except to occasionally pee - clear liquid, not white solid. Any ideas on why he's doing this? It always looks like he's about to poop but he doesn't, he just stays like that. I don't think it's impaction because there is no swelling.

    Welcome aboard!

    Please share a photo of your crestie's vent. Maybe he's straining to poop, because of constipation. Does he lick water from the sides of his enclosure? Has he a water dish for fresh water?

    Place a drop or two of mineral oil or vegetable oil on his snout. Let him lick it off. See whether that helps.

    He licks water off of the walls and leaves. I'm having trouble uploading a picture, but it's always just slightly open, and he peeks whenever I pick him up. He also has pooped as of yesterday but this problem persists.

    See whether these tips help uploading a picture.

    Posting Photos/Videos...inline or attached
    Click: vBulletin FAQ
    • To insert a video find 3 lines of choices at the top where you make a post. On the second line, 15 icons in from the left, you'll see a video icon. It looks like a ladder. Post your video URL right there. A picture and arrow like you may have noticed here will be displayed, not just a link.
    • To insert a photo use the "image" icon close to the "ladder" icon.
      • Click: Go Advanced under the reply box
      • Then click: Manage Attachments
      • Find pictures from your computer and upload them (after uploading your photos/video to a free Imgur account)
      • Grab the url they provide
      • Then click "insert image url" OR "insert video url"
      • Then paste & share

    Imgur offers free online sites for sharing photos.

    Here's another way to post a picture.
    1. At the foot of your post click the Edit Post button.
    2. Then click Go Advanced button.
    3. Scroll all the way down to Management Attachments. Click.
    4. Click: Add Files. Select a photo from your files and upload it.
    5. Drag that photo into the area underneath.
    6. Click both buttons on the right: Insert Inline and then click Done.
