Tail rot

Postby Crystallaughton » Thu Oct 08, 2020 2:38 pm

New beardie owner and have questions about his tail. I can’t tell if it’s tail rot or just turning brown. I have pics but I can’t figure out how to upload them to this site.

When you are about to post something, there's a tab above the chat box that says XIMG. If you click on it, it shows you the pictures you uploaded to the website and I believe that it lets you upload pictures from your gallery. My child is having similar problems, but I am no certified vet :D . I hope this helps!

You can also use this link to post pictures:

Without seeing the tail, unless their was an injury to the tail that resulted in an open wound for a period of time, the chances of tail rot are basically nil :)

He’s never had an injury just dark circles appeared… And then the bottom one started doing this...I’ve started the betodine and Neosporin treatment but I’m still worried

The crimped bit at the end doesn't look good. Keep up the treatment and take photos regularly so you can compare. If that starts looking worse or starts traveling up the tail, then a vet visit is warranted for further treatment. If it stays the same over time, then it isn't likely to cause a problem. Do keep a close eye on it.

Hello,

I agree, the end of the tail looks troublesome, poor thing. Continue putting the antibiotic
ointment on the end of the tail & just do your best to keep the tail clean. I hope it doesn't
travel upwards on the tail. Did he get it pinched in something?

Keep us posted on him.
