    Default Leopard gecko diarrhea and loss of weight


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello, I have a girl leopard gecko who has had eggs since the beginning of April. She has barley eaten while she has had eggs. On May 13th, I noticed her poop was very watery and not normal. I cleaned it up and weighed her and she had lost 2 grams. I was worried but waited to see if anything else would happen. On May 16th, I weighed her and she had lost another gram. I read that loss of weight and diarrhea are signs of parasites. I can take her to a vet at any time if she needs it. My question is, is this a sign of a parasite or other diseases? She hasn't been acting strange, I've seen her drink water recently and I haven't change her food or environment. I have ivermectin because I have a bunny with mites, would that be able to help her?

    Thanks.

    Hello Milkway ~

    The only way to tell whether parasites are involved is to collect a fresh fecal sample & quickly bring it to the vet.

    Please keep GU in the loop.

    Thanks, do you think these are signs of a parasite, or something else?

    It could be symptoms of parasites.
