Disclaimer: DO NOT look at these pics if you have a weak stomach!!! OMG!!! I went to take Talyn out for a bit of cuddling and I couldn't believe what I saw! She is torn to shreds in two places and has smaller cuts in a third and fourth. If I didn't know better I would have thought that some animal had ripped her up. The major gash is about 1.5 inches by 4 inches and goes all the way to the muscle. The other one is about as wide but did not tear open. I'm still not sure what could have caused this... obviously something in her terrarium, but ???!!!!! My first priority was, of course, my girl. I called Baxter in San Diego: she said to get her into a bath and try to clean the substrate out of the wound, put some Neosporin on it and put her in a quarantine box with just paper towel and a water dish. This all sounds so obvious, but I was in such a state of shock, I couldn't think. My husband (a people doctor) cut the extra hanging skin off (gag!) and we cleaned out the wound as best as we could. She bled a bit so we didn't do too much more. Besides the cutting, it didn't seem to cause her too much pain; but who can really tell?! Do I need to take her to a vet? I'm not sure what more a vet could do at this point unless it gets infected. This had to have happened some time last night cuz I had her out yesterday evening and she was fine. ANY ADVICE WELCOME!!! I'm freaked!!!! (not to mention sick to my stomach!) PS -- Of course I'm going to go over her terrarium completely to find the cause... I'll let you know.
