Beardie bleeding behind hind leg

Postby chrissyhansen1987 » Wed Mar 20, 2019 1:53 pm

I came home and went to hold my beardie. Saw she was bleeding on her side by hind legs. There was not a lot. Cleaned her off and saw it looked bruised. Please help I'm not sure what to do. I have her in a plastic carrier now on her heated san with a heath lamp to keep it clean. And her warm.

Do you know if she could have fallen or gotten the leg trapped in something? Try to keep the wound as clean as possible to prevent it from becoming infected. You can use plain neosporin or unpasteurized/raw honey to help protect the wound. Is she showing any trouble putting weight on it or using it?

If you can post some photos of the wound and some details about your setup it may be helpful as well. You can upload photos here https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/ and post them to your thread using the XIMG button when you reply.
