Going to cut to the chase. Decided to do a rescue on a leopard gecko. Was given to gf for free. I saw enclosure and was like let’s get her up and running as I felt bad for her and I have knowledge on how to keep (healthy ones for that matter) after getting home and seeing her, she’s in EXTREMELY poor condition. Sever mouth rot, stuck shed, toes lost. Shrunken tail, eyes sealed shut, etc... I get to work getting stuck shed off so she can see again. But she’s dropping toes in the process so I let her be after soaking her. My main concern is healing this mouth rot. Can any EXPERIENCED leo keepers lend me some insight on what I should do. I really want to give this girl a chance. I know how to set up enclosure as I’m in the process of making that happen (what she came in was awful). Advice on getting her back in great health would be greatly appreciated. I’ve never dealt with a sick animal like this because I’ve always kept mine in the best possible manner.
