    Exclamation My leopard geckos hemipenes are out?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi, so I'm realised that my leopard geckos hemipenes are out, well one of them is, he is 3 years old, his eatting and pooping fine, his fine being handled normally, he did have a sperm plug two days ago, Which he had managed to get out him self, I've put him in a tub with kitchen roll so he doesn't get anything stuck to it, I'll send a picture on the comment to this, but I have looked into going to take him to a vets as it is bleeding abit, but the swelling has gone down, the exotic vets is an hour and a half away from me and I have no way of getting there, so need to find a closer vets that deals with leopard geckos, so does any one have any ideas what this could be, I was thinking it looks like a prolapsed hemipene.

    It may be a prolapse but it doesn't look that bad. Get some karo syrup (it's in the grocery store and is actually corn syrup) or Preparation H (yes, the stuff for human hemorrhoids). Apply some. This shrinks the tissues and may result in the hemipenis going back in. If it doesn't work, you're going to have to make the trip because a vet visit will be essential. You could call that vet and see if they know of anyone closer, or if they are willing to consult by phone/skype with a more local vet.

    If that doesn't work, keep the tissues moist on the way to the vet. If the tissues dry out, they may have to be amputated.

    Please keep Geckos Unlimited updated.

    Also, I have a breeding pair, but I haven't put them in together yet, the male is in a viv but the female is in a tub in the viv so they can see each other, would it be fine to put them both together now? I've only just had the female at the start of this month

    I suggest light Karo syrup. Try that first.

    If you try Preparation H, buy the type with NO painkiller. Cream ? Please check the labels or ask your pharmacist.

    I would recommend at least a 30 day quarantine, if not more before introducing a new gecko to another one.
