    Unhappy Leopard Gecko with green poop! Please help!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I bought a baby leopard gecko from Petco two days ago. I was told that she is nine weeks old. She seems perfectly fine, physically, but I'm worried about her fecal matter. I know it's only been two days, but, so far, it's all been green and runny. I've heard that that could potentially mean she has a parasite. I don't have the money to take her to the vet, so I can't be sure. Is it possible that this could just clear up? She's eating just fine. I fed her 5 gut loaded crickets today, and she ate them all. Other than her looking a little bit sleepy most of the time, she's fairly active when I handle her. She walks up my arms and sits on my shoulders. If she doesn't get better, I might try to go exchange her for a healthier gecko, but I'd really prefer not to. I've grown rather fond of her. Please, if anyone out there can help me at all, let me know! Rajah and I thank you!

    Often after young geckos have shed and eaten it, their poop will be a greenish colour.

    I've heard that, but is it supposed to be runny? Today, it seems to be less green and more brown, but it's very watery. As for the shedding, I'm not sure if she already has or if she's going to soon. The top of her head and a little bit of her back looks almost powdery, but just slightly. I'm going to take her to a Petco animal care specialist on Monday.

    Petco is in the process of taking her to the vet today or tomorrow, so I'll find out if she needs the worm medicine. As for the aloe, that's very interesting. I've never heard of that.... Do they just eat the pure aloe? Like the stuff you can buy to rub on your skin (not sure if it has anything added)? I might have to try that. Does it soothe the stomach or help with impaction?
