    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.

    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...
