  • RIP my little Oslo~! ;_;

    I just got back from the vet.

    Combining the facts that Oslo has lost 1/3rd of his original weight, refusal of food of any type, and recently started having massive amounts of seizures...I had to make a hard and painful decision.

    Vet had no idea what was wrong with Oslo but she said even if they hosptialized, force-fed, and did several blood-tests...she did not think he would survive another two weeks. I decided that the best thing to do was to put him down. I didn't want him to suffer anymore. I buried him in the corner of my backyard inside a jewelry box.

    I also made a video about this for youtube people as well:

    Oslo was an active gecko when I first got him. Afraid of insects and loved to curl up against the glass door when sleeping. Always tried to jump into my backpack whenever I handled him.

    I am going to miss him and I loved him very much~!

  • #2 so sorry. I know you loved him very much. You were a good person to take him to the vet and have him checked.
    I know the decision was very hard for you, but sounds like it was the best thing for your boy.
    Thinking of you

        I know you are not ready now, but if you are ready to try again at the end of April and want to take the ride down to Hamburg, I can have a baby there for you to take home.

          You did everything you could sweetie and your video was touching. I had one of mine die coming out of the egg while in my hands. I was candling it and it started to move and I got so excited and was afraid if I put it down it would drown in the fluid so I held onto it. And it moved for a while then just stopped. I freaked and sat it down and waited for a while and came back and I could smell that it wasn't right. I cried all day long. I still blame myself for it. I keep thinking that maybe when I was candling it, the egg moved positions. We also recently lost 2 other little ones. They weren't eating their CGD at all and barely drinking water. I went in to mist them one day and they were barely breathing. We tried misting them because they looked dry...didn't work. Tried giving them water and food off the tip of our fingers and after a little while, they both died. It was heartbreaking. We had another one die in the egg as well. I don't know if it ever developed all the way or not. The clutchmate freaked when it came out of the egg and dropped its tail. Almost like he knew there was something wrong with the other egg.
          And like your video said....they aren't "just" crested geckos, they are part of our family and no matter what others may think, a loss isn't easy no matter how long you have had them. Especially in your case since the poor thing suffered so much. You made the right decision though. You are a very good mommy!
