- Beardie name(s)
Please get some raw unfiltered honey on it - it looks like the end is dead and you don't want infection starting in - dip the tail in the honey watch for black creeping up the tail -- no crickets in the tank please--I closed my beardie’s tail in his cage and a few scales came off. He doesn’t seem to be in much pain, but a few scales came off and I’m worried HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dipped his tail in honey, should I do something about his substrate? It’s calcium sand and I’m worried it might get into his injury. Thanks a lot!Keep an eye on it for turning black. If it is injured bad enough it could cause tail rot, stay on top of it just in case.
You can dip it in betadine or use raw unpasteurized or Manuka honey on it just in case. If it didn't do any tissue damage and just skinned off a few scales it likely won't cause any problems. But keep an eye on it just in case. ...... don't beat yourself up over it, it happens, i did the same thing to Sweet Pea earlier in the week. (No injury just a really P.O'ed beardie)
Please replace w/ the textured NON adhesive shelf liner found at Walmart or your local home improvement store- cut to the size of the tank clean w/ vinegar and water 50/50 wipe down w/ a wet dish rag/ towelDipped his tail in honey, should I do something about his substrate?

What’s wrong with calcium sand? /genThe calcium sand is a bad option, I would recommend replacing it asap. If you want to use sand normal play sand from your local hardware store is the best option. I would use the shelf liner like Karrieree said, tile, or paper towels till its healed.
