    Default Sick Class Pet

    My class has a leopard gecko, named Clyde. Over the last 2 weeks he has slowly stopped eating. He hasn't used the bathroom in days and seems lethargic. Any ideas about what we should do?

    Make sure that the temperatures are correct in the enclosure. Then, please consider a vet visit.

    Hi ~

    Welcome to Geckos Unlimited!

    • Please share a photo of Clyde.
    • What size is Clyde's enclosure?
    • What powdered supplements does he receive? Please list brand, exact name. and frequency.
    • Are you matching these temperatures?

    Temperatures - A temperature gradient from warm to cool maintains your leo's health. Here's a temperature guide for all leopard geckos as measured with the probe of a digital thermometer or a temp gun (and controlled by a thermostat set at 91*F/32.8*C):
    • Warm end ground temperature: 88-92 F (31.1-33.3 C) underneath a leo's warm dry hide
    • Cool end ground temperature: 70ish-75 F (21.1-23.9 C) Usually the cool end ground temperature matches the room temperature where the enclosure sits.
    • no greater than 82ish F (27.8ish C) air temperature - 4 inches above ground on the warm end
    • no greater than 75 F (23.9 C) air temperature - 4 inches above ground on the cool end

    Leave the heat mat/UTH on 24/7. If you wish, during the night turn off overhead lighting/heating (~12 hours on and ~12 hours off) unless ambient room temperatures drop lower than 67ish*F (19.4*C).
