Beardie's tail got caught in viv door!!

Postby Coconut2020 » Wed May 27, 2020 3:17 am

So I literally feel so awful I could cry but my beardies tail got caught in his viv door. He freaked out and I realised what had happened and pulled him straight out... he has a tiny little kind of wound I guess and his tail was about the shed so the top scales have come off leaving the bottom scales underneath. There was the tiniest tiniest amount of blood underneath the bottom scales that I washed away with water but I'm super worried. I plan to bath him tonight and soak it so it's clean and then use manuka honey while he's asleep so it doesn't get infected and I've ordered some Tamodine (arriving tomorrow)... he seems fine now, he was a bit upset initially but now seems normal. His tail isn't bleeding anymore but I'm just absolutely freaking out. People have said his tail might fall off or go black!? Can someone please just put my mind at ease 😭

Hi there, sorry about this little accident ! It doesn't sound too bad so just a topical [ raw or Manuka honey or Neosporin ] is fine. Some wounds can cause a piece of tail to fall off but that's not always
the case, especially with small wounds. Can you post a few pics of it ? Here's how :

That doesn't look bad at all, it should heal up pretty easily. Of course you can keep an eye on it like with anything but it looks O.K now. :)

Thank you so much!! I was so worried because I'm usually very careful with him and he's super chilled do for him to make a fuss was scary... so glad you think he'll be okay. Will keep an eye on it and make sure to put some manuka honey on the protect from any infection... thank you!!!

I did something worse a few years ago - I was making jewelry with my cockatiel Kiwi walking around and just as I used wire cutters, she quickly waddled over and nibbled the blade as I was clamping it down. The very tip of her beak sliced off and I wanted to jump off of a cliff immediately! Luckily she’s pretty tough and even though she screamed for like 30 minutes, once I got the bleeding to stop it scabbed over and her beak regrew pretty quickly. If you ever feel bad about an accident you make, just know I accidentally snipped some of my bird’s beak off once!
