Hi! I have an 3ish month old leopard gecko who hasn’t eaten for over a week now. His tank mate is eating just fine and there is nothing wrong in the tank. I took him to a vet and she deemed him healthy. Is there something I’m missing? Please help! He’s loosing weight and I’m scared for his life.

I think the first thing to do is to separate him from his tank mate and see if that helps. Sometimes there is subtle bullying going on.
What are you feeding him? I once sold a leopard gecko (who had been raised on mealworms) to someone who called me a few times because the gecko wasn't eating the mealworms. Finally I recommended he try crickets and the gecko went crazy for them!
When you took him to the vet, did the vet test for crypto? It's a different test than for other parasites. Please ask the vet if this was done.
