Well, how is your gecko’s condition? If it’s not too underweight, then don’t worry too much. If it won’t eat on its own, try using a dropper. I’m sure there are videos online about it

Mouth rot can be treated with a betadine solution, 50/50 dilution in water.
I would avoid feeding things with hard exoskeletons, so try red worms, cut up earthworms, silkworms, and
small superworms.
You can also remove some plaque that may build up on the mouth by a small cotton q-tip with olive oil on it and gently swab the area. Keep the mouth as clean as possible and consult your vet for further treatment.
Good luck.

my gecko died 2 months ago that was pretty sad :(. well I found out how he got mouth rot. well when I got him at PETCO (don’t buy from there) he had some black on his teeth but I thought it wasn’t that serious.but then a month later he looked like he was going to die and the vet told me there was no hope. But now I have a new leopard gecko that I got from a breeder but thanks for the info

Yeah, everyone on here basically avoids chain pet stores, they are terrible. I only go there for supplies and food, but NEVER animals.
Good luck with the new baby, sorry to hear about the loss.

Hey anarchy is a great distributor! Glad to see more people are buying from them :) I first saw them at a reptile show and was impressed by the good condition of the animals and the friendly employees.
