Hello,

How old is Spike?
It is also possible he could have had a stroke, if this came on suddenly. While it isn't super
common, it does happen.
Which brand of tube bulb are you using & how often does he receive calcium?
His teeth don't look horrible, their teeth & gums do get stained when they get older though.
You can try getting some betadine & diluting that down to resemble very weak tea. Then get
a soft, small toothbrush to try & gently brush his teeth.
Are you referring to the lower eye lid, has he shed that area recently?

I rescued Spike I got him Jan 10, 2016 I don't know how long his other owners had him, he didn't appear to have any UVB or heat, both his back legs are bummed the old owners said one of his back legs got broken.
