Passing stool and urates?
I am so sorry for your loss. Generally we see shedding issues due to too little humidity or a Vitamin A deficiency. When there is a bad shed we generally will increase the humidity. If that did not work the next thing would be a daily soak and increasing the tank humidity. We do not aid in shedding. If it is pulled off too soon, it can leave the skin open for infection, leaving the Gecko open for sepesis, which is a blood borne infection. Some shed will com off easy, but if was to soon and it was pulled off the infection I mentioned could have caused the probem. There is also possible there was a parasite issues which could have compounded the problems. Parasites can come in in prey feeders. Please hit reply to discuss this information. My gal is to give you excellent service and to earn a 5 star rating.
Wanted t check in and see if you found the information helpful.
