[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]
Zakhari's last shed was abnormal and his tail didn't shed. I think the shedding skin may have suffocated his tail at the end.
The end is hard and he doesn't respond when you touch it like he does with the rest of his tail.
Hi, how old is your beardie? Our 4 1/2 yr old male had to have part of his tail amputated because the black was moving up his tail and it was infected. Do you have a good vet in your area? I would definitely make an appointment to make sure it's not an infection. Before you do that put some Polysporin cream on it to see if it will stop, just until you can see a vet. Hopefully you have a good reptile vet in your area. Let me know how that goes.
That is not tail rot. That is maybe retained shed, which will just cause the tip to shrivel up & fall off. Tail rot is normally caused by a bite that got infected. Retained shed most of the time does not cause any infection.
Is she getting ready to shed her tail right now?
We miss you, Crocodile Hunter!
Hello. He shed his tail earlier this week. The tail there is already necrotic. I went to the vet today and he said he was going to wait until 7-10 days had gone by to see if it spreads. He is going to get the dead tissue cut off on his next visit.
If I'm not mistaken, there is no way to save the end of his tail right now, correct?
