    With the thought that he probably hasn’t pooped due to inadequate heat and not digesting properly, would it be best to skip the feeding this week and feed him once I return from my Alabama trip? I could gut load next Tuesday evening and feed Wednesday, 8/28 (so it’d be almost two weeks since his last feed). Or do you think it’s ok to feed him a meal this Wednesday evening before I leave? I obviously don’t want to starve him, but I also don’t want feeding him this week to possibly make this worse since he wasn’t on proper temps.

    He'll also need more heat to digest the food he's already consumed.

    What size is his current enclosure?

    It all depends upon his current ground temps underneath the warm dry hide. How soon can you get temps between 88-92?

    His current tank is 30” long and 12” wide (top opening with lid). Temps are very close to where they need to be. His warm dry hide is registering at 89-91 degrees. His warm moist hide is around 85 degrees (hoping lamp brings it up a smidge.)

    His warm dry hide is the one that is over the majority of the current UTH. His moist warm hide is off to the side of it, so that’s why I put the 50 watt red bulb over that to warm it up some more. He was hanging out in the warm moist hide just a moment ago, but has already moved to cool ground hide. For the moment, I took down his raised cool hide as he was hanging out in there earlier after the tank re-arrangement and obviously that doesn’t do him any good at the moment with digesting.

    Based upon those temps I'd keep his feeding schedule as normal -- 2x per week.

    Lightly dust with Rep Cal's Calcium with D3 at 1 feeding per week and then Herptivite (straight) as the multivitamin at the other feeding per week. Switch to Zoo Med's supplements as soon as you can.

    Skip Saturday's mealworm feeding. He's pretty hefty!

    Weekly Schedule 126 for Leopard Geckos 18 months old +
    (without UVB)

    • Crickets or dubia >> Monday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Crickets or dubia >> Thursday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins without D3
    • Mealworms >> Saturday - no dusting

    Just for clarification - should I do a feeding today before I leave, or would you think it best to wait until I return home on Tuesday? Of note, I have not yet found a poop. Also, he's looking a bit pale, so I'm guessing he's coming up on a shed.

    First give your leo another dab of EVOO.

    Then feed him today before you leave town.

    He pooped!!! He just ate a good amount of crickets tonight. Can’t wait to get him in the new tank. Feeding will be much easier. Still gotta get the bigger UTH and the supplies needed for that before I can move him though.
