PostSubject: HELP HELP HELP!!!!   Mon Jun 02, 2014 10:37 pm

Hey everyone. My little brother has a leopard gecko and today it is just like she went limp. I am not sure what happened but when he went to check on her she was super soft, squishy like, and she couldnt move her lower body whatsoever. She was born last year and she eats pretty well. She is about 20 grams. She has a nice plump tail for the size of her body. It seems like she is just going to die. What should I do. Like I said, she cant move and is soft as crap. Does anybody know whats wrong? I need help immediately!!!

I dont deal with geckos but my first instinct was impaction. Theres other things that could possibly cause similar symptoms but that is the most common and would be my first guess If she cant move her back end and is lethargic, although more often then not youll notice a firmness around her belly.

What is her diet?
When and what did she eat last?
Is she eating or drinking at all now?
What type of substrate is she on?
What is her set up like? Temps/lights UTH, exc exc
when did she last poop?

I cant do too much being so far away, maybe someone closer can offer some assistance and/or a vet trip may be in order.

Impaction, MBD, Injury

She eats mealworms and crickets. the last time I saw her ate was 2 days ago. Nope. She is on a paper towel. It is a 10gal aquarium with a little heat mat underneath. She has a cup of mealworms and her water bowl on one end and on the other end where the heat mat is she has a humid hide like thing where there is some eco dirt that is wet and it keeps the box humid. The last time she pooped that I can tell was 2 days ago. Thanks you so much for your help.
