    I have a leopard gecko named Spot. She was 3-4 years old when we got her (according to the person we purchased her from) and she has been pretty healthy for the past 4 years we have had her. She has trouble with shedding though. It gets stuck on her toes so I give her baths occasionally. We have a hide with moss in it and a warm hide that she usually stays in. Temperatures range from 75-90 going from cool side to hot side. Lately she has been having shed stuck on her eye, I got it off but her eye was fogged and there was some fluid coming out. We have a water dish, food dish, and calcium dish. We usually feed her mealworms with the occasional waxworm/hornworm. We used to give her crickets but she got disinterested. She is somewhat lethargic, but still moves quickly at times. She has been losing weight because she cannot really see the worms when we feed her. Usually she will look at them but when we try to feed her she just stares blankly, as if she cannot see very well. Should we take her to the vet? Thanks.

    Yes, itís very important to get her to a vet. Take a look at the caresheet that is located towards the bottom of the page to make sure husbandry is up to par. Make sure you are dusting her insects about once a week with a preformed A supplement. Feel free to ask any questions and let us know what the vet says.

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    Please take Spot to a vet right away. If Spot has an eye infection, she'll need meds. I hope you'd like her to keep whatever vision she has now.


    Is Spot's humid hide with moss on the warm end of her enclosure?

    Please list the powdered supplements you use: brand, name, and frequency.

    She might have some sort of eye infection, I'd say to go to a vet
