Have Reptile Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and reptile rescue.
Can you tell me what type of Reptile was are speaking about?
Can you tell me about the set up?
Temps in enclosure?
Have you had a Fecal check done?
State to locate a Herp Vet if needed?
Is Explorer passing stool? Is it normal?
The tail will regrow, so that is a good thing. The problem with weight loss and the vomiting sounds like a blockage or a parasite issue. I would like to do some first aid to help until Explorer can see a Vet. First we need to give a soak in a shallow 50/50 Pedilayte soak and warm water this will hydrate Explorer. Next to feed try some chicken baby food mixed with calcium Poweder and drop on the snout and allow Explorer to lick it off. When a Leopard gecko stops eating or intake is minimal and throws up if eating there si something serious going on. They are stoic and are usually a meal for other animals so hiding illness is a normal within the reptile kingdom. With this being said I have to recommend a Herp Vet visit for a Fecal check and exam.
