    You could try cleaning it up with a q-tip in warm water. Maybe it's a buildup of something that could be removed. Some geckos don't eat much in the winter even if there's no mouth problem.

    Welcome! A vet visit never hurts. One thing to discuss with the vet is whether he's getting too much calcium (I stopped leaving calcium in the enclosure in 2009) and too much heat (I'm assuming...

    I'm not sure what the belly spot is. Keep an eye on it and see if it changes. I'm surprised this guy didn't end up as bearded dragon dinner! As you know, the shed does have to come off and I guess...

    Not being a vet, and not having treated a gecko with Panacur, I won't even chance a response. I'll be curious to know, though, what you end up doing.

    My preferred calcium is all-in-one Repashy Calcium Plus which I've been using since 2009. I dust feeders every other feeding. The number of hornworms depends on the size. When feeding worms...

    Sorry for your loss. It's so sad when a gecko that seemed to be doing fine goes downhill so fast. I've experienced it with mine as well and it's tough. It's so easy to wonder whether we should...

    To get the shed off the eyelid you're going to have to use tweezers. I was terrified the first time I did this. Hold the gecko firmly with your fingers holding the head still. Give it time to...

    It's hard for my old eyes to tell. Is it a juvenile? If so, you may have to wait a bit longer. My memory of my AFT's is that the males bulges were pretty obvious as an adult.

    I'm wondering if the vet did any testing for the usual parasites and also for cryptosporidiosis. I'm not saying that your gecko has any of that, but I would guess that sometimes lethargy and refusal...

    I think there's a lot of individual variation. I certainly see that with my geckos. Sometimes I know they've eaten and the poop area is empty. Just goes with the territory. On occasion, the gecko...

    If you think about it, the natural way for geckos to eat is to hunt their food. It provides mental stimulation, exercise and enrichment. Geckos are variable in terms of how much they eat, and as...

    You could give him the best enclosure in the world (and the largest) and he may still go up to the edge and start trying to climb. I find that leopard geckos seem to get into behavior ruts and it...
