Another femoral pores question, continuation

Postby cjack99 » Thu Jun 07, 2018 12:02 pm

Hi;

Decided to move from a topic in general (beardie has claws under middle). Have decided based on that topic that the subject Beardie (JL) is a male (was thought to be female for the previous 6 years).

Have also decided JL has large femoral pores and 4 of them have visible waxy substance, 2 of which are quite long, about the same length as his toenails (actually longer). The longest one, when wiggled, can be seen to wiggle inside the pore, so it's as long on the inside as it is on the outside.

Have been giving almost daily warm soak, 10 minutes, which he is starting to hate, but have not noticed any improvement or visible change. His underside is nice and supple though.

I'm thinking I need a better soak, or something to dose the area with that lends to softening the substance. Ideas? (if it was my cat, there would be an Epsom salt session, but no idea if that works on Beardies)

Thanks for your thoughts, here is a link to a pic of the subject:

Yeah those do look a bit clogged. Don't be too aggressive with it, just give it some time. Keep up with the warm water soaks which should in time soften those clogs and let them break free from the pores and return to normal.

I remember coming across this video a few weeks ago and it was the first time I had even heard of femoral glands... not sure if it’s any help to you, but she uses a vet recommended cleaner and neosporin I think?

Update:

Well,,,, continuing baths do not seem to be going anywhere. No worse for sure, and he's nice and clean, and his thighs are all supple and soft, but the pores show no improvement.

Thanks for the link to the video. I have seen that one before and it's been in my mind to try it. That's going to be my next action.

Will post again with further updates.

cheers
