    Not sure why the first link isn’t working but amino acid requirements for reptiles was listed.

    Are you supposed to take your leo the first time you get him/ her to the vet and then take him/her only when problems arise?

    You specifically asked Elizabeth freer so I wasn’t sure if you wanted anyone to answer? I would take your gecko for a wellness visit.

    Thanks for elaborating, Sg612.

    Yes, that's correct. Your leo's first visit establishes a baseline. A "baseline" is how your gecko appears at that visit. Some vets recommend annual check-ups.

    Since your new leo is perfectly healthy now, continue supplementing and feeding like he's used to. I've never used Miner-All Indoor for any extended time. I've shared what works for me and many, many Geckos Unlimited leopard geckos. All 3 Zoo Med supplements I mention have made tremendous differences in the health of geckos l'm currently breeding that are more "delicate" than leopard geckos.

    A "wellness visit" is bringing a seemingly healthy lizard in for a check up. It formally estabishes contact with that vet should something else happen in the future. The vet may or may not wish to run other tests.



    Hi reptilesunleashed ~

    I'm not certain whether you saw my complete reply, reply #5. Can you scroll back to it? I don't know how links "work" if you're checking in by phone.

    I've highlighted what I personally do and what vet charges are right now in Portland, Oregon USA.

    Make sure you see 3 new replies on this thread: 15, 16, & 17. Be sure to read these replies completely.

    Please share a video of your leo walking around. That video will really help us out.

    Please share a photo of your leo's enclosure too.

    Since the link didn’t work for whatever reason, I took a screenshot.

    Blurred. Sorry I tried.

    I've also been doing some research and came across another forum about tortoises and they said Miner- all contains all essential amino acids for reptiles. My leo does have calcium overdose ( those bubbles behind their arms), but some people say that it is just a sign of your leo storing something.
