My giant day gecko has seemed to have worsened over the last month. I know he is at least 6 years old, but didn't ask how old he was when i first purchased him then. He's getting so skinny that his backbone is sticking out a little bit, but he's eating normally. I know that I should probably take him to the vet, but money is an issue right now. He also seems so fragile, that the stress of taking him to the vet would be enough to kill him. Does anyone have ideas of what to do, or if there is nothing...to at least make the last few weeks of his life any better? I give him calcium with d3 and feed him 3 times a week. I spray him at least once a day (more often lately) and the temps are as they should be...is he just getting old?
