Very worried mommy!!
My Leopard Gecko that I've had for 3 years doesn't seem herself. Shes very tired, lazy, her belly seems bloated. She is going to the bathroom and eating some, but not as much as normal. Everytime I go in shes sleeping, this morning she was even sleeping in her water dish. Shes always been on a diet of mostly mealworms, sometimes some crickets but not normally. She has a pad under her tank and a small regulated heat rock (shuts off when it gets to a certain temperature) to keep it warm, and we do put a night glo light on her at night. She used to have a heat daylight bulb during the day and the night glo at night, but its been since the summer time that we stopped using the daylight and it never seemed to bother her. The three vets around here told me its not even worth me upsetting her to take her in because no one can help me with lizards, and I work at the pet store here and we don't know much more at the pet store. We adopted her 3 years ago in February when the person who had her was actually starving her (she was only eating one meal worm a WEEK!) but since then she usually averages 4 or 5 mealworms a day until lately (shes probably eating maybe one or two if I can get her to do that). Some people asked me if they go into a hiberation type state, but would she do that even though her temperature hasn't changed? i know that fish will even kept at a constant temperature but she never has before. She seems a little more lazy but not too different to handle her, just shes very tired lately and bloated. Unfornately there is noway to get her to any vets until at least Friday since none of the ones within 4 hours of here will have anything to do with lizards. I'm so worried!
