I had to put one of my leopard geckos to sleep today. He acquired a spinal injury in which muscle and tissue were swollen and crushing against his spinal cord, preventing him from feeling or using the lower half of his body. We took him to the vet, got an x-ray, and then gave him some steroids and fluids in hopes that reducing the swelling would bring him around. There was about a 48-hour window in which he had to improve or there was pretty much no hope. Obviously things did not go as planned.
But he’s probably in a better place now. We bought him a beautiful flower to put in the yard where we buried him so he’ll always have a place there. I’ll try to get some pictures up so you all can know what he looked like.
In any case, he will be sorely missed.
