    Question Strange puffing sound


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi all! I rescued my sweet boy, Nugget, just over a month ago, and I took him to the vet basically right away and she gave him a clean bill of health, but just recently after he eats he males this strange puffing/sneezy sound once he comes out of the tank. Im not entirely sure whatís happening seeing as itís not like anything Iíve found online of examples. Because heís a rescue with no previous vet records I have no idea what Iím the world it could be if anything at all. My family says I could over dusting his food and it gets in his nose, but Iím worried it could be something else!

    Any help is appreciated

    Does Nugget's "strange puffing sound" seem like a wheeze? Does the sound come from his nose or from his lungs?

    How are you doing for enclosure temps?

    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).

    Place the thermostat's probe and the digital thermometer's probe together right on top of the substrate underneath the warm dry hide. If you use a UTH + a CHE you'll need 2 separate thermostats, because ground and air temperatures are substantially different.
    • Warm end ground temperature: 88-92 F (31.1-33.3 C) inside a leo's warm dry hide and his moist hide too!
    • 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 (10 cm) above ground on the warm end
    • no greater than 75 F (23.9 C) air temperature - 4 inches (10 cm) 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).

    It doesn’t sound like it comes from his lungs, more like trying to exhale something rather than inhale. And my temperatures are pretty much on par with what the above list is telling me

    with temps!

    Does Nugget's "exhaling sound" happen when you don't dust at a feeding? Does it kinda sounds like a sneeze?

    I wonder whether Nugget could be allergic to his supplements. Which exact sups are you using? How often?
