    Default Removed stuck shed on toes


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I had removed some stuck shed on 3 of my gecko's toes, the other two are doing alright and scabbing well, but the middle and last one had taken some time for me to remove (around 4 days) and I'm afraid that her toe might fall off. Here's a pic, it looks pretty bad too. I'm planning a vet appointment as soon as I can get it. All of her toes with the stuck shed had also bled when I removed it.3222C8AB-20D4-49F1-A33B-A061792A114D.jpg

    A vet can prescribe SSD (silver sulfadiazine) to help with infection/redness. Over-the-counter Neosporin withOUT pain relief may also be used.

    All these things relate to shedding:

    1. Does that leo have a warm moist hide that's located totally on the warm end 24/7?
    2. Which supplements do you use? With what frequency?
    3. About how old is your leo? Length?
    4. What size is your leo's enclosure?

    I'm using neosporin without pain relief to help, and her enclosure is a 20 gallon long, 24/7 access to a humid hide right on the heat mat aswell, she's turning a year old in April, and she's about 8-9 inches. Her dusting schedule is M and F, multivitamins, T and T, calcium without D3, W is both combined, and S and S are no dusting days. She has a UVB light in her enclosure too.
    Thanks Elizabeth Freer thanked for this post

    Thanks.

    What you've described on this post may represent excessive dusting! Excessive dusting will lead to hypercalcemia. Please share the exact product brands and names.

    1. Which insects and worms are you feeding her?
    2. What do you feed the insects and worms?
    3. Are you lightly dusting all the prey at those feedings?
    4. Which exact UVB light: brand, type (coil or linear), & strength are you using?
