    I have my leopard gecko in a cage we made from a bookshelf with plexiglass door and this morning she somehow got under the plexiglass and got stuck on her back legs and has a scrape on her back and bruises on the back of her legs, is there anything I can put on it? What do I need to do?

    She can't really move her back legs, but their not paralyzed.

    If she hurt her legs, the only thing you can do for her is take her to a vet. That doesn't sound like a home remedy problem.

    I don't know if it is that bad. She can still walk.

    Do I have to take her to the vet? or is there any kind of antibiotics I can get her?

    Her back legs mite have just been sore cause she is walking fine now.
    Should I do anything for the scrape on her back?

    I don't think she needs to go to the vet

    I wouldn’t apply antibiotics unless it starts to look infected, and if that’s the case, it would be best for a vet to prescribe them. If she’s walking now and seems to be improving, it may be best to just let her heal and keep an eye on her. On the other hand, if she’s having trouble walking, or there’s a chance of internal injuries (or if her scrapes start to look infected), that would require a vet visit.
