    Hi there,
    Thank you very much for that link, I really appreciate that. I have read about other causes / associated issues of exessive weight loss and lack of weight gain - I will be calling my vet when they open in 5 minutes, hoping they can fit me in with him quickly.
    Thanks again,
    Alex

My vet opens in 5 minutes and I will be asking for the soonest appointment he has. She still hasn’t eaten anything, which is very unusual for her. Hoping the shed method will work, which I am preparing to do soon. She is actually in the exact same spot/ position as she was last night, when I last checked on her.
    As with the other persons response stated here, I will definitely be ruling out other possibilities, aside from cryptosporidium, which as you know I was leaning toward. I am hoping my vet will do the swab of her vent, that you mentioned earlier.
    I do not want to be sounding pessimistic but I fear at this point she does not have long left - but I will see what the vet says, his thoughts and his recommendations. My current thoughts are; have the swab done, possibly another full parasitology, along with a full faecal screening to rule out, or single out possible causes. .
    I will update again shortly.
    Thank you very much,
    Alex

    Don't try the shed method right now. That will exacebate her poor health.

    Here's a link that may have been buried from the link I already posted.

    I've seen all 4 images you've shared in your initial post. Jude is barely hanging in there. Maybe it's time to say goodbye.

    If she passes away, I'd be sure to let the pet store know. It's nearly impossible to disinfect against cyrpto.

    Hi there,
    I’m very sad to say that Jude is no longer with us. I’m relieved she’s no longer suffering, though.
    Thank you to everyone who took the time to respond to my post, I truly appreciate all the tips and advice.
    Im devastated but I will not rule out getting another leopard gecko in the future.
    I will indeed let the pet store know.
    Thanks again for everything,
    Alex

    I'm very sorry that Jude has passed on. You did all you possibly could for her.

    Here's a rose to ease your pain.
