Did you get the bump checked by a vet today?
Thanks for the story! Vet was busy yesterday but got an appointment on monday with 1 of the best reptile vets in the uk thanks for all your help x
Hi, does this vet work at Edinbrough zoo, by any chance? (I may know him, if yes).
he works for lawrie veterinary clinic dont know if he goes to edinburgh zoo thopugh 1st time going their was told hes one of the best by another vet clinic
He got a cheak up today hes fine and healthy gotta wait a month or so to see if the tail is drying up but it should be ok x
Good, I hope the tail tip remains o.k!
I hope the tail stays good, keep an eye out for any changes in the color or visual differences.
Glad everything is fine. But what makes a tail dry up?
Lack of circulation, which will lead to death of the tail.
Has he ever bitten her tail (especially when chasing crickets, etc)? I've seen lizards clamp down on their tail when missing their aim at food a few times. It shouldn't be an issue but yeah, does look fractured.
As Michele said it could be lack of circulation due to a ring of retained shed.
It could also be due to physical damage such as a break.
When the tip is damaged a condition known as dry gangrene can set in. If left unattended the infection can progress up the tail into the body and kill the animal.
