My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35 years and have worked with Reptiles over 40 years.
Is this a male Gecko or Female?
Do you see a Prolapse?
type of substrate?
Have you tried cleaning the area?
can you post a picture?
Thank you! Looks like a male and it looks like the sand went up in the vent causing an infection in the Vent.
We need to do some immediate first aid and he will need to see a Herp Vet for an Antibiotic. I can locate Herp Vets for you with a State or Country.
The first step is a shallow warm soak Allow him to soak fow about 10 mins and then try to gently clean the area with a soft face cloth.
Once the soak is over pat dry and then take a Diluted Betadine solution mixed with warm water to a dark tea color and gently clean the area and apply some Neosporin to the area.
You need to remove the sand and use Paper tile or cage carpt for a substrate. Sand can be deadly.
If you supply a location I will locate some Herp Vets for you. If in California, please let me know north or South.
It looks like there may be a seman plug there as well as stool. You want to try and get as much as you can in the soak. We want the warm water to soften it up so it could be removed in the water. After drying, then betadine and Neosporin to keep it soft.
There are Herp Vets in your area:
Please let me know if I can assist you further. If I have addressed your concern a 5 star rating would be appreciated.
