I think its okay for now too since it hasn't progressed. The vet thinks that the black skin (very black around trauma) is dead and won't heal so amputation is best. I'm hoping it will fall off on its own but I don't know how long that would take. Here's some more photos.As long as the room is warm you don't need a CHE, if she needs to lay she will do it when the urge comes on. The tail looks O.K to me unless it's changed but it's up to you for that decision. Good to let it go for now and let her have time to lay if she needs to.
@AHBDTail is honestly looking the same or better. Not progressing. If it does heal on its own does anyone know the max amount of time that could take? I’m assuming soft-tissue injury can take longer for animals with scales. I’ve had her about two months and I started treating the tail with betadine probably a month ago now. I’m now doing betadine closer to every other day, I don’t want to kill all the good bacteria that could be helping it heal. Doc thought the black part was fully dead tissue but I’m not sure I agree. I think it may have just been infected/irritated. Anyways, I am thinking she might get to skip any amputation and just heal it naturally In photo attached it has neosporin on it. It’s gonna shed soon too so it will be good to see how things look after that.
Side note: I’ve been hand feeding treats but this seems to be backfiring. She now tries to bite my hand when I’m not holding treats lol. It’s pretty funny but I’m still going to rehome her and I don’t want her to pick up this behavior. It definitely a confusion with treat it’s not aggressive biting.
Her main nickname is “Crazy” hahaha
Also I have officially uploaded a profile for her on RescueMe.com
Still need to check on her gravid situation and tail healing before I can give her up of course. I am thinking she could have reabsorbed the eggs but I’ll need to do bloodwork or x-ray to confirm that. Her gravid symptoms (restlessness) have been slowly fading but she is still eating a lot and seems healthy.
I would not do side mesh - if she climbs it she will get her nails stuck in it--Simon update!
She is doing great today marks 7 weeks into being gravid so she should’ve payed by now but I personally think she reabsorbed the eggs or reversed it somehow, but I will be going to the vet next week to make sure there’s no egg-binding.
I was wonder if anyone had any good tank recommendations… I’m going to try to find her a forever home but if I can sell her 40 gallon for a good price then I figured I could upgrade her before sending her off. I attached a photo of the tank I found that might be a good fit. Only difference is the side mesh and price, dimensions are the same. Have not been able to find any used ones but if I can sell her 40 gallon for $100 or $120 it might be affordable. Let me know if this is a good quality tank!
I’m just really gonna miss her and want to give her the best setup ever before I have to say goodbye
Love those options but I’m looking for something a little smaller, affordable, and all glass. She (unlike most beardies) actually likes being able to see out all directions. I’m not sure what her new home will be like but she loves looking out this window (light doesn’t come straight through it so no overheating concerns).I would not do side mesh - if she climbs it she will get her nails stuck in it--
