As some of you may know, I keep and breed leopard geckos as a side hobby. Geckos are very prone to humidity change problems and heat-based complications. I own a small female carrot tail who was having trouble with a shed. She is young, about one or two years old, so technically a baby. After her last shed, she couldn't get the shed off of herself completely and stopped eating entirely. Her weight dropped off fast, and now her tail is stick thin. Her bones are almost protruding. She was taken to a reptile vet, who prescribed antibiotics, calcium supplement, and critical care food. Her first treatment was yesterday. We made her a small humidity box as well, which she has been spending time in. She is malnourished and dehydrated, so her chances of survival are thin. Her eyes are sealed shut and she is lethargic. I will post a picture when I get the time. She responded well to last night's syringe feeding and ate a teaspoon of critical care along with her meds and the calcium supplement. I will keep this thread updated on her conditions. She is so young, I'd really hate to lose her.
Edited for details.
