Cut arm

Postby Beardiemum2019 » Fri May 31, 2019 2:19 am

My beardie has an ornament, he loves it but he’s growing really fast. The ornament had little holes in it and when he was really little he could run in and out of the holes, but this morning he got stuck in one of them. He wasn’t breathing and his arms were trapped to his sides so we had to just force him out slowly. He’s walking and eating completely fine, although he has a scrape on the skin of his left arm. It’s not big and it didn’t bleed or anything, but I really don’t want it to get infected and was wondering if anyone has any advice!

Hi there, if there's no blood and no open wound then it should be fine. :) Post a few pics if you'd like and apply a bit of neosporin if it looks irritated. Here's how to post pics :

Thanks for your help! I took him to the vet yesterday and they were worried about a fracture/broken bone, but he’s okay apart from a little swelling. He’s been given some anti inflammatory (which he loved since it was honey flavoured!) and they’ve said that he should be fine by his next shed:) thank you again!!
