I don't know how old my leopard gecko is, but I've had him for a few years. He used to eat fine, but I would always have a bit of trouble getting him to eat... it got worse and worse. I didn't have a proper shed hideout for him, and he would always have shed on his toes. Then, my dad dropped the gecko house on my gecko. It landed on his tail, it got black and infected, but we went to the vet and got the medicine.
Eventually, the black part of the tail fell off (yay!) but he has had serious problems eating ever since. He does not want to eat. Ever. I haven't fed him in months, because he acts as if he can't see the food. Now, he gets shed stuck in his eye, causing mucus, and I have gotten it out of his eye successfully a couple times, but it gets harder each time... and I am constantly afraid that I am damaging his real eye instead of the "mucus eye". I use tweezers to get the mucus out, which seems to be damaging. I am very worried. The mucus removal has gotten more difficult and less successful each time. It seems that even after I get it out, it comes back. He also squints his eyes a lot and never opens them. He may be too sensitive to the light, as he is albino. This past time when I got the mucus out, his eye began to bleed.
Now I am very worried. I know he is dying (his tail is very thin, but still has a bit of fat) but how long does he have to live? Is it worth it to go the vet? What should I do?
