Puncture Wound?

Postby bmass326 » Sun Oct 13, 2019 3:24 pm

We are new beardie owners and had an eye opening and tragic incident the other day. Our new baby beardie was on the windowsill in the sun and jumped down. Our bigger beardie who was in the same room on a chair jumped down instantaneously and attacked the baby. :-( No more Beardies in the same room anymore.

A couple days later...we noticed These 2 black spots on our bigger girl. We suspect that they are small puncture wounds from the baby struggling during the attack. Does it look like a puncture wound? If so...how should we treat this? TIA!

It could possibly be a bruise but have you taken it to the vet

No we have not had her initial vet visit yet. I was recently laid off from my job and funds have been tight. We plan to call our local Herp vet tomorrow to get a price estimate for a visit.

Hi there, looks like it's healing up just fine, no sign of infection. Baby beardies nip + bite all the time as breeders raise them, they heal very easily. :)

I'm sorry about that, but I dont think you would need too like what ABHD said, so its most likely a bruise.
