Broken claw.

Postby Aireon719 » Mon Jan 11, 2021 5:27 pm

Hi I don't know if this is the right place for this post but my bearded dragon has seem to hurt her claw while digging and glass surfing cause she is in the middle of laying her first eggs which are infertile by the way and she's had 7 so far. Anyways she seems to have broken her claw and has dry blood and wanted to know what I can do cause my vet is closed for the day. [Click image to enlarge]

I would go to the vet just to be safe so it does not get infected.

I've been trying to call my vet to ask their recommendation but can't get a hold of one they've been busy and I'm trying to avoid a trip if possible cause they are a good ways and I'm a little low on cash. Please don't take that as I don't care cause I will take her if need be.

One thing you don't want to do is interrupt her egg laying. You can soak it in betadine -water solution but other than that it should be fine. Once she's done laying you can also put Neosporin on it and a gauze wrap but it could come off if she continues to dig. All in all, lots of beardies bust a nail and are perfectly fine. :)

My vet told me to put neosporin on it. But right now she's refusing to eat anything and has lost 2g since yesterday so I might have to take her to vet. But if she hasn't eaten by 4 I might blend up her food and syringe feed her.

Is she still laying ? They almost never eat while they're still laying eggs. And was that a typo when you wrote that she lost 2 grams ? That is a negligible amount and nothing to even be remotely concerned about.

It's been about 2 days since her last egg and she's only had 7 eggs and I say 2 grams but she used to weight 400 some grams but I'm guessing a lot of that is from the eggs. But my vet still recommended I come in just in case. So she has an appointment tomorrow. But good news is she is loving her water. After she drinks it she gets in it and messes around in it making a big mess.
