I haven't seen any fecal in almost a week (crested gecko) besides white stuff (pee). I called the vet and she said to bring him in to her right away. I can't because I am at work. My appointment is tomorrow at 5:20pm ET. The vet said he could be impacted. I use terra or coconut husk as a substrate, which has never caused any impactation that I know of. Even in the reptile store that I go to. It is made to avoid impactation. I feed him crickets and babyfood. It is going to be really expensive to take him in. I gave him 2 warm baths to maybe loosen things up and of course instead he decides that it is a good time to start shedding. :) He is normal other than that. He still eats and runs around in his cage. Right now I have him in a smaller bare container to see if he poops. I am also going to try Prune babyfood. Fecal sample was done about a month ago and was clean.
Should I still take him in?? What do I do?
Thanks Tons!
Liz
