My leopard gecko is suffering from several symptoms and I'm worried he could be dying..please help..
My leopard gecko seems to be shedding all the time and it's coming off everywhere except for his feet and head. His eyes look like they're drying out and one looks almost gone. What could cause this and how could I prevent it? And his jaw looks rubbery and almost broken and he won't eat. His lamp went out a while back and I just put one back in there today and I hope it helps with the eating but with the symptoms he has I looked it up and it says it to be metallic bone disease. I need help. I've had him(Gizmo) since I was little and I really want him to be ok. Please help, Dr.
Your descriptions is almost certainly that for metabolic bone disease, and at a very advanced stage. Frankly, there is little you can do without consulting a veterinarian--the lizard may need an injection and force feeding. IF you go this route, let me know how it turns out, and then I'll give you some tips so it won't happen again. But don't waste time -- see the vet NOW!
