Help! I have 2 Leopard Geckos, a male and a female. The female is terribly sick. She is an adult and she was about 6 or 7 mos. when I got her. I had her for about 8 or 9 mos. with no problem what-so-ever. Now she is sick. She is so skinny, tail and body. Her substrate WAS crushed walnuts and she USE to eat freeze-dried crickets. But I cleaned out the cage last week and bought them both live crickets. Now I feed her crickets all week and mealworms once a week. She is getting better, but she is still skinny. I wanted to breed her with the male, but she is too sick to breed. I want her health to rise fast. I really need help! Plus I don't have a vet close by me and the vets charge too much. So please be a kind person and help me before it's too late. Thank You!
