Customer: I have a leopard gecko that is not eating and I just noticed a raisin since bulge under his tail
JA: I'll do all I can to help. When did you first notice this decrease in the leopard gecko's appetite? How is his energy level?
Customer: about a month ago I noticed a decrease that wasn't substantial but it has continued to decrease over time. In the last few days he hasn't eaten much at all and he is lethargic
JA: Does the leopard gecko seem to be in any pain?
Customer: His usually plump tail is depleted
JA: And what's the leopard gecko's name and age?
Customer: Leo and he is 3
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know?
Customer: not really sure...never had to get treatment for a gecko

Hello,Customerresponding to your message regarding Leo, know you are worried, I'm very concerned as well. The swollen area may be an impacted hemi penis. If possible soak in warm and shallow water for 5 minutes 3 times day. Send photos and video. We will discuss further when you reply.
