Is My Leopard Gecko Sick?

There are a few common diseases a leopard gecko
could face during his life, but some of them could
be avoided if an owner takes proper precautions.
Here’s a look at some common health problems:

Osteodystrophy, also called Rickets, is a deficiency
in calcium usually caused by a poor diet. If it occurs,
osteodystrophy  will result in
a loss of bone density. It will cause crooked and
stunted growth, and the bones will become more
fragile and could be fractured  easily. Symptoms of
osteodystrophy are weakness, soft jaw, tremors,
swollen limbs, and crooked legs. The best treatment
for this illness is correcting  the gecko’s diet and
increasing his calcium intake.
