    Exclamation Gecko not eating, and possibly ill! Maybe sticktail but Iím not sure


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello!
    So Iíve had my gecko about a month, heís 4 months old, heís been looking quite thin and so weíve been feeding him about 7 crickets and the occasional waxworm, which he was eating and he was pooping fine, but he hasnít put in any weight really since Iíve had him and his tail is looking quite thin, not boney and you canít see his spine or tail bone but definitely looks like there is little to no fat reserve in his tail. Iíve been worried about his weight for about 2 weeks however as he was eating and pooping regularly I thought I would see how he got on. Suddenly in the past 2 days heís not eaten anything (only 1 cricket a day) and doesnít seem interested in food or wax worms either! And he seems quite lethargic. Hes only shed once in the month Iíve had him and that was a week ago, and heís been in and out of his humid hide in the last two days but doesnít seem to be looking dusty like he does when heís about to shed. Iíve got to the vet and showed a photo and she said all the husbandry Im doing seems fine but heís definitely too skinny, so Iím just waiting for the results back from a poop sample.
    Is there anything anyone can recommend to do in the mean time to help him out? The results will take about 10 days to get back due to the current virus situation, and Iím worried that if he carries on only eating 1 cricket a day he might not make it until then... Iím very worried and would like to know what I could do in the mean time to help him out. Also his substrate is kit hen paper.

    You have 3 threads started about this same gecko and same problem. I've closed the last two, since there's no need to keep starting a new thread every hour. It won't speed up any help.
