SOS- Beardie keeps nipping his toe !

Postby Scox218 » Sun Jul 16, 2017 11:49 am

A little background
Name : Savage
Age - 3-4 months
Sex - Boy ?
Tank size - 40 gal
Light - Powersun Uv 100 watts

During his usual shed . Routine ( 2 bath soaks ; misting in between )

He was shedding a couple of days ago , I heard thumping in his tank and noticed his beard was getting darker . So I picked him up and noticed that he bit his toe/toe nail and it bled but it wasn't deep. I've just been doing soaks and using a toothbrush to clean the area in case there was any old shed hanging around . But now it's just on and off he will try to bite the same toe again. I haven't the clue what to do ! I just know I don't want him to continue hurting himself ! Anyone have any suggestions 😔[Click image to enlarge]

Did you need me to merge your two threads?
I agree, this can happen if there is retained shed, or something is causing some pain or discomfort on his toe.
Getting some antibiotic ointment or raw unpasteurized honey on that toe & hopefully it will heal up pretty quickly!
Are you getting enough calcium into him too?
