Cookie needs help

Postby Pancake151 » Sat Oct 31, 2020 1:06 pm

Hey guys, I am posting this because Cookie has injured himself quite badly. I’ll include a image but it is not for faint hearted. We have a glass aquarium for fish that we turned into a spare home for him. The glass fell on him.

Hey guys, Cookie has just had some glass fall on him and it severely hurt him. I am really upset now as it doesn’t look too good. I can’t take a picture because we already put a bandage on to keep it clean. Right now he is in is travel case which isn’t very big but it can help him stay safe. The scales have came off. I am really worried. It isn’t bleeding and he can move freely. It is an open wound. It is about the size of a corn kernel. Should we leave it?

Can you post a picture of it?
The most important thing is to keep it clean so it doesn't get infected. Raw unpasteurized honey is a good choice to use for this. It also helps speed up the wound healing process.

P.S. We have lots of pictures ;)

I agree, do use raw, unpasteurized honey on it only, since it is an open wound. I think you will
be very surprised as to how well it works. Be sure that there is no dirt, debris or any other loose
type of substrate or insects, etc in his surroundings to get into the wound & cause infection.
You mentioned that he is up & moving around, so, nothing "appears" to be broken then?
