Human hair

Postby Muffin797 » Sat Jul 20, 2019 9:48 am

So little bit of a crazy story but I want to make sure everything is ok. I feed my little guy in a bin. One of my hairs fell off my head into the bin with him this morning and I didn't notice. Anyways, he had a poop while he was in there and managed to the the hair stuck to his ***** (like in the vent). Should I try and pull it out? Do I leave it? Will my little buddy be ok?

Edit: I found another thread from a few years ago. Apparently this happens semi-often. The best thing to do is to cut the hair so that it doesn't get caught on anything. Pulling on it can hurt the digestive track. The beardie should pass it just fine on its own.

Yep, this has happened with my guys and not really caused much problem. If it comes free with a slight tug, that's great. Otherwise do what you said and just cut it as needed and it should eventually pass through without issue.
