    Exclamation Does my Leopard gecko have a Respiratory infection!?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My gecko, calypso, has had stuck shit on her head for three days, todayís the third day. Yesterday I put Mas in a hide and wet it a little bit to help with the humidity and to take it off (humidity is 60 rn). But this morning, I went in to just rub her chin and she made a little squeaking sound almost like a sneeze, she has never done this before and Iím worried it might be a sign of a respiratory infection?
    Iím going to clean her cage soon to hopefully get the humidity down again, but if it seems more serious weíre going to have to risk going to the vet.
    She so far isnít showing any other signs of a respiratory infection like heavy breathing or gaping or anything.

    One day in a humid hide is not going to cause a respiratory infection. I recommend you get the stuff off yer head (if you haven't already) and then watch her carefully for a few days to see if you see any more problems. Sometimes geckos can squeak, especially if they're having a new experience they're not sure if they like.
