Thanks for photo. Unfortunately you purchased a sick Gecko, an option is to return, check your paper work and receipt to see if there is a health warranty.
Goal is to keep alive until you can return or can be seen by a reptile veterinarian.
Being Thanksgiving we are limited on proactive care at home
Is there something you see that makes your feel that he's sick?
Your history.
What is substrate or bedding in habitat?
Reptile carpet
We've had him for about two weeks we just got him a larger tank two days ago and he also just got done shedding. Do you think he's not eating because of those reasons?
Possibly, the loose stool concerns me.
Would you like me to send you links?
