    Default Think my day gecko may have mouth rot but unsure?

    I’ve noticed she has these two marks both side of her mouth and was wondering it was mouth rot or just marks

    shes had them for a while, she is very active, usually eats every day (sometimes she may eat every other day), drinks daily, goes toilet regularly and just genuinely seems healthy other than these marks.

    Those irregular areas along your gecko's lip line may be the beginnings of mouth rot (infectious stomatitis). Those irregularities are abnormal. How does the inside of her mouth look?

    The safest bet is to bring her to a vet who specializes in exotics. Here's a worldwide link.

    See whether you can get your gecko to open her mouth. Gently sweep your finger across your leo's lips. She might open up and give you a very quick look. This will be more difficult with a day gecko, because of her size.


    It's really important to have mouth rot treated.

    If it was me, I think I would have a vet check it, just to be on the safe side.
