    Unhappy Small Juvenile Leopard Gecko MBD + Crust in eyes


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everyone, recently I picked up two leopard geckos from someone rehoming on craigslist. One of these geckos however; has multiple issues. The person claimed that the gecko had enigma syndrome.

    When I arrived home, multiple issues were apparent.


    The gecko with problems:
    - has really severe MBD ** does the army crawl on its front legs to move some
    One eye has black dried up gunk on it
    ** I cleaned up its' eye a bit and the part of the eye I can see is really cloudy still. I assume likely due to the gunk in its' eye **
    The other eye also has this black dried up gunk on it. However this eye is smaller it seems. *** And in almost fully closed state.

    The sad part is it's going through a shed. But how will it get the shed off without assistance?

    I can not think of what the quality of life will be for this gecko. I am making an appt. with a vet who thankfully has pretty decent reviews with herps. I am thinking though; that I might have to have this gecko euthanized.

    Any thoughts?

    I agree, it's not looking good. I'd say let the vet help you decide what to do.
