Herein, how is stick tail disease treated?
Treatments a Veterinarian Would Likely Recommend Metronidazole and ronidazole are often prescribed for flagellated protozoa and certain kinds of bacterial infections. Trimethoprim-sulfa, amikacin, enrofloxacin or other antibiotics may be prescribed for Gram-negative bacterial infections.
Also, how can I help my sick leopard gecko? If your gecko is having these problems, try soaking it in a warm water bath twice a day. The water should be deep enough to cover your gecko's hips. While your gecko is submerged you should gently massage its belly. If that doesn't help your gecko pass their stool and urates you should take your gecko to a vet.

Betadine & Water Soak Find a shallow dish that will allow you to submerge your dragon's tail. A good rule of thumb is to be able to submerge the tail about an inch above the visible tail rot to ensure it is fully submerged. Fill it with 3 parts water and 1 part Betadine.
