Hi there - we are brand new to the gecko/reptile world. My daughter has this leopard gecko and about two days ago we noticed something protruding underneath. We tried to get him into an exotic vet but the next appointment is over a week away. We watched you tube and tried the sugar bath and applying honey but it has actually made it worse. I am attaching photos - any help would be appreciated....

Thanks!

Shannon

I understand that the vet doesn't have an appointment till next week but, this is a true emergency and your friend should call back the vet and tell them that this gecko needs to be seen right away as an emergency. If the exotics vet still won't budge, have your friend go to a regular vet as an emergency. I know they can't necessarily do much, but perhaps they'll be motivated to contact an exotics vet and do a telehealth visit. It's really crucial that this gecko gets to a vet ASAP.
