Reptiles/leopard gecko neck infection


so my leopard gecko kujo the one bitten by my cat shed tonight while I was at work and she ate all the skin. and she didn't the last time I think because she was to soar. theonly thing is she is kinda pale along the spine so I don't know if that means anything. I hate this im 23 and she is by far the pet that means the most to me I cant imagine losing her and I feel kinda hopeless

Hello Steven,

How does her neck look now after shedding?
Did her entire body shed or just part of her?
They will tend to eat the skin of their shed a lot of times.  
Do you have a new picture of her?  
Try to get some food into her to help her with getting her strength back.  Were you able to get some chicken or turkey baby food for her?  She should like the taste of that & it does have some fat in it which should help her.

Let me know how she is doing.

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.


I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
