    Exclamation Is my gecko Impacted or just Overweight?

    Hi, I got Elizardbeth on Christmas. I believe she's at least 6 year old. The previous owners didn't tell me. I fed her every other day (feed her one day, skip the next, repeat) for a while because she wasnt being fed that much before.

    She's also been pretty lethargic for the last month, I took her to the vet and they looked at her. She had parasites, so I'm giving her medication for that. The vet did not say anything about impaction when they looked at her, or if she was overweight.

    She drinks often, Poops fairly often, but not as much as before since I have been trying to cut back on her amount of food and only feeding her maybe once or twice a week. Most of the times she will eat her food unless she is not hungry. I usually gave her 5 large crickets every other day, then switched it to mealworms, then back to crickets. I'm sorry for the images I can't rotate them.

    I'm not a vet, but if she's pooping then it's likely she's not impacted. If she's pooping less because she's eating less that does make sense.
