UPDATE:

I am beyond happy to announce that Marvin the Mighty has made a full recovery ❤️‍🩹

He’s back to his normal, feisty self. His injuries have completely healed and the infection has been cured. Looking at him now, you would never know he had been hurt or sick!

Thank you all for your support and help. You have helped me tremendously during this stressful time and without your amazing advice, my beardies wouldn’t be thriving as much as they are now.

Again, thank you!!

This morning, my cat broke into my baby beardie’s terrarium. Athena (the cat) somehow managed to get inside the light compartment, tear the screen, and shimmy her way down into his home through a tiny tennis ball-sized hole. She attacked Marvin (the beardie) and left some pretty nasty gashes. Luckily, I was home and was able to intervene. I got Marvin to the vet asap and he was treated immediately.

Poor baby has a cut under his right eye, a scratch on his front right arm, two puncture wounds on his mid-body, and some bruising on his tail. The vet said the puncture wounds were not deep (to his knowledge) and that these were injuries he has a good chance to recover completely from. Marvin was prescribed an oral antibiotic and eye drops to prevent infection. He was patched up very well and we were sent home with a follow-up three days from now.

It’s a bad situation but it could have been much worse.

We kicked Athena (the cat) out of the room and moved Marvin into the “quarantine tank” just to keep a better eye on him. He’s been moving around fine and has since de-stressed a little since this morning. I offered him some greens and crickets but he has refused all food so far. He pooped without an issue and his stool looks normal. Marvin is currently resting.

I’ve with never dealt with injuries like this before (thankfully) and any tips on helping him recover would be greatly appreciated. I was given a list of things to watch out for, but any and all advice is welcomed. Thank you!!

Saw below lil Marvin is doing well . I was going to mention crustal care reptile is a good for sick or healing animals. It’s a powder and you mix it in water or baby food and drop it in their mouth. Great stuff .
Glad all is well 🙌

Hello,

The critical care works well for a lot of them, in moderation. It helps a lot with nutritional status.
Let us know how things are going with Mighty Marvin!

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
