Pooka is 4 years old but I have had her for half a year.
Her tank is a 20 gal, but to seperate sick gecko from healhy, i have cardboard halfay across so she is only using 10 gal
i use repticarpet, as thats what she grew up with, but I have a hide with cocoanut, which is currently removed.
i have a day and night bulb, as well as florescent UVB lighting. The day and night are on top of the tank (metal mesh)
The temp on her side is currently 85 degrees, measured by petco thermomiter i place on tank floor
humidity is unknown
I feed her superworms, which she eats regularly. I sometimes have baby roaches (madagascar hissing). Dusted with calcium regularly. Last week added vitamins to diet.
Symptoms: not eating or pooping turning dull, then pink. (Usually yellow) Shedding twice in 4 days, second shsd was clear and goopy, currently stkll shedding. Sheds reveal pink skin with a few bleeding spots. escaped and was founs 24 hours later. Bledding tail, multiple scratches and bledding spots. Bleeding toes during shed (normal for her as she has stubby toes when i got her and she has only 2 nails). Was dragging belly earlier. Not moving much, and very cranky- she usually adores back rubs and her tail raises and she rubs her head against my finger; currentry she shrinks to the ground. Shrinking tail. I house her with male and female gecko who have lived together since 1 year of age with no breeding attempts. Male is kind of grumpy atm, he and his "wife" are both shedding. 2 weeks ago i learned that poop has to be removed daily, whichi usually onlydid when cleaning carpet. Now I remove regularly- noticed some large, substratie poop, and hide with cocoanut was removed.
I have give her neo (no pain killer) on her bleeding spots and daily 10 minute baths with few drops of mineral oil. She wont sit still. Today i started putting olive oil on nose to lick. I cant afford even a simple checkup for a vet. I want my Pooka"saurus" back to her normal self! Also should i force feed her mic of superworms cockroaches calcium vitamins and water? Is she impacted? Her vent was white as usual and no sign of eggs or lumps or dark coloring.
