    Default I think I fudged up real bad PLEASE HELP

    Guys I need help I love my gecko I always give her fresh repashy every other night, keep temp and humidity right but I have neglected to handle her,almost never,and today I just started to worry A LOT. Tonight I cleaned the tank and hand fed her a tiny bit of banana as a treat but she wouldn't eat much I also notised a grey spot on the mid. Of her head and the back of her head slightly sunken in. She was also very sluggish.
    I have never seen any sign of shed in the 5 months I've had her I desperatly need help I will post pics in a few mins

    She does not look good . I would start with a sauna right away in unflavored pidialite and then consult a vet as soon as possible.

    Just a guess but she looks very skinny and dehydrated. I think you really need to set a vet ASAP.

    Unfortunately, I'd say that gecko is in critical condition. Something is preventing her from getting nutrients into her body. That is why her head and hip bones are sunken in. Collect a fecal if you can find any fresh samples and get her to the vet asap. Sorry.

    It honestly doesn't look like it has been eating anything at all. I'd follow the suggestions given for rehydrating and get it to a vet as soon as you can.
