    so sorry for your loss. That is a tough one. From the pics, it looks like an infection from an injury. did you get her necropsied? that could help in determining the real problem and preventing it or acting on it faster next time.

    Fumbles ~

    Any chance of having a necropsy and a histopathology done?

    Did you notice the Uroplatus phantasticus caresheet Mike Martin linked?

    #37---Necropsy/Histopathology Protocol: 4 January 2013
    Information provided by my nearby exotics vet

    Refrigerate, NOT FREEZE, the deceased gecko in a ziploc bag.

    Bring the body as soon as possible, but within 48 hours, to your vet who can send the body on to a vet pathologist.

    Keep the body cool with cold packs while enroute to your vet. AGAIN, do not freeze.

    The body will be preserved in formalin by the vet and then routed to a veterinary pathologist.


    2013 "Local" Costs --
    necropsy - $29.00
    histopathology - $119.50 for up to 6 tissue samples. For more than 6 samples there is a $15 charge per sample.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words and wishes. Unfortunately I didn't see these posts in time and I laid her down in a nice spot. It would be too late now for a necropsy.

    I didn't inquire with the vet - does anyone know what something like that would cost?

    As far as care changes - the UVB was 6 months old - I keep them fairly current but I'm going to just switch to dusting with D3 supplement rather than without then switch to a lower brightness, non UVB bulb.

    I'll likely also be taking the background of that vivarium out too and rebacking it with corkbark rather than greatstuff/coconut fiber because the corkbark is much softer. That could have caused the mouth injury as the other fimbriatus in there has a small raw spot on its nose that I'll be keeping a sharp eye on. I think the whole thing developed from "dive bombing" the background.

    You are welcome.

    I should have posted the necro/histo info right after I heard that she had passed away. Next time I will go with my gut feeling.

    I checked the costs for Portland, Oregon in January 2013: --
    necropsy - $29.00
    histopathology - $119.50 for up to 6 tissue samples. For more than 6 samples there is a $15 charge per sample.

    If you get the details down, it is safer to use UVB rather than D3 dusting.

    I'll likely also be taking the background of that vivarium out too and rebacking it with corkbark rather than greatstuff/coconut fiber because the corkbark is much softer.

    Good call!

    Uroplatus are neither easy nor forgiving geckos. How about requesting some info from an expert Uroplatus fimbriatus breeder? I do have one name anyway that I could PM you. Perhaps he could refer you.

    Other GU members will have more of a list of resources than do I.

    Start a thread for your gecko's problem. Tacking your question on to an old thread won't do much to get you some help, no matter how many threads you post on.
