Do you think you might have a sick leopard gecko? Do you have questions about brumation and sexing? Welcome to ReptiFiles’ table of contents for all things leopard gecko health.
In the wild, a sick or weakened reptile is a target for predators, so they have become experts at pretending to be well. As pets, this means that any reptile owner must be extra diligent in order to notice changes that may indicate illness.
- Weigh your gecko weekly – sudden weight loss often indicates illness.
- Keep a weekly record of weight, feeding habits, behavior, shedding, etc.
- Prepare a reptile first-aid kit so you won’t be left scrambling if your pet becomes sick or injured
