Tail trauma - rot?

Postby Tashabou » Sat Dec 07, 2019 10:44 am

Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and to owning a bearded dragon! I got Bruce from Petsmart a week ago. When I got him, he was shedding, and I noticed his tail had a cinch about a cm from the tip, looked like it was going to fall off with the shed. But after reading more about tail rot with trauma (assuming it was trauma), I'm worried that I should be taking action. He measures to be 2 months old. Could y'all please give me your advice?

You did this right, except you want to copy the link to the specific picture you want to post, not your whole library :)

That tip was damaged from either retained shed or possibly a bite. It looks like it will just fall off and probably not be a problem. You can dab it with Neosporin daily just in case but I've seen that type of small injury before + they usually just fall off.

Thanks so much! I will do the neosporin. He has been scratching a bit like he’s ready for another shed so hopefully it will fall off this time
