    Hi I am hoping someone can offer me advice, I have a 21 yer old leopard gecko who has lost weight, especially from his tail. He is eating but not as much as usual, nor with as much eagerness. Is there anything I can do to help me fatten up a bit. He is fed on crickets and locusts, and has...

    Hi. first post.. whey. So anyway, my royal has lost 300g over the last 3/4 month of not eating (due to him wanting to breed) he is now 1.3kgs from 1.6kgs. I was just wondering whether that's a fairly normal about or a little high. He has now fed so I'm asking out of curiosity

    I have two leopard geckos housed together, according to the previous owner they are male and female. Over the last week the female has lost so much weight and her tail has became extremely skinny and shrunk but my boy seems to be exactly the same, tail is still really fat. I lost her sister in...

    OK! It has been a whole year since I got porky Sid my CB99 rescue corn snake. And my first snake. He was extremely overweight, to the point his back end is rediculously weak, he has 'hips' and wheezes without it being an RI. Vet checked and they believe he has sustained arthritis like damage to...

    Hi, my female leopard gecko seems to have lost weight and is not putting any back on, I think she's stopped loosing weight and is just staying steady but I just can't get her to put weight on, does anyone have any suggestions? :(

    Hey all, My Royal refused his 5th feed today (It's now sitting in the Viv so there's always a chance!) But if not I was wondering how much is too much weight to be losing in 6 weeks? Last time I weighed him he was around 200-220g (slightly inaccurate scales) so how much would be too much to...

    Hi, I have a slight problem. I took 2 of my corn snakes to a reptile vet a few weeks back now with a fecal sample as they both drastically lost weight in a week (it was extremely noticeable) he said he thought they were just a little under weight but gave them a jab anyway. Well a week later one...

    My 3 year old male royal python hasn't eaten since the end of October, I realise they go off their food over the winter period but am concerned that it has now gone on a little long. He has just had a really rough shed (his skin came off in small pieces), despite being in a very humid viv. Until...

    A few months ago I bought a baby Brazilian rainbow boa. Since I've had him/her it has not eaten, and doesn't pay any interest in food when I try to feed it. I have tried the size of baby mice given by the pet shop I bought it from, and smaller. I've tried cutting the bellies or heads of the mice...

    Hi there This is our first year for hibernation with our two rescue torts, one is 14 years and the other 9 years and both have hibernated previously without a problem, though not with us. After almost a month of wind down, no food, light going off etc followed exactly to the step we have...

    Got my royal last Friday and weighed her at 924g. Since then she has eaten, shed and poo'ed (which looked as it should). Weighed her today and she is 860g. Does this sound about right? Or could something be up.

    My sister in law's gecko has been quite seriously overweight since she got her - 105g for an otherwise normal sized leo (about 8 and a half inches). She was advised to breed her this season to try to rid her of some of the weight, so she was brought down to my house for a week and mated with...
