Customer Question

I have a crested gecko a year old he won't eat anything with calcium powder on. I've just handled him and he is shaking his head very fast from side to side what is this.
Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the gecko's name?
Customer: Pecko
Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pecko?
Customer: He hasn't grown much and won't eat live food only repashy or fruit. If I use calcium on anything he won't touch it
