impacted gecko emergency
LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD
One of my gecko is impacted.After 4 days by rubbing her belly, she finally pooped . Now it's been 7 days that she hasn't poop at all.I try rubbing her belly in a warm soak 2 times a day. I gave her once a day vegetal oil,and since 3 days I give her mineral oil instead.She hasn't poop after change for mineral oil. She is 30 gramms, the temperatures are good in her quarantine box, she has water,a calcium plate,and a box with humid towel. She still wants to eat but I didn't feed her since she hasn't pooped her ****raoches.
She her weight is stable and her tail looks quite good.
What can I do to help her? My vet can only see her on tuesday so I'm extremly worried.

First, I suggest that you stop giving her oil. Can you provide more information by answering the questionnaire in the link? A picture of the gecko's tummy and enclosure will be very helpful.
When was the last time she was fed? how many? size? what insect(s)?

She is bell enigma, aged of 6 months.I bought her from a shop called terrario center.
She is living in a quarantine box 25x35x20. The substrat is kitchen roll, the box is heaten by a mat 91.4 hot spot 78.8 cold spot. The big box is a humidity box that I put on the warm side , and a big hide is made with an empty kitchen roll. She has also a small calcium reserve. My thermometer is a digital one, and the humidity is around 54 60 percent.
She was fed with crickets,mealworms and red runners, lastly I give her 3 waxworms in which I had to put the medicine against inner parasites.
I try to follow the various advices from breerders and the vet but is he is not specialized at all in reptiles and the new one (reptiles specialist) in the city will be able to check my leo only on tuesday evening.
So I was told not to lower the temp at night, to give her 2 bath a day and to give her mineral oil drops everyday. SHe is at home since the beginning of July.
