Sadly, my 18 year old leopard gecko has not been very interested in his food the last couple months, and he is starting to lose some weight. I've already talked to my vet about it, and it sounds like he is just slowing down at this point. I know there are several brand/variations of critical care, reptaid, etc... Can anyone recommend one to me? I'd like to get more nutrients into him if I can. I've bumped up his temps a little and started soaking him more often, so hopefully he might be tempted to eat a little more soon. :(

I have heard of gecko owners making insect paste/slurry for poorly feeding leos. Oxbow also makes a carnivore therapy food. I think the reptaid and such are more "herbal remedies" or electrolyte/probiotics. They may have an appetite boosting effect or be a calorie boost (never used them) but I'm not sure they are nutritional support. I'd ask your vet what they recommend, or at least recommended avoiding.

What a long lived gecko, I am very happy for him! I hope he still has more healthy years to go with you.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
