If the cat injured him, this can be very serious as a cat bite can kill a Dragon. The Mouth and claws of a cat are high bacteria areas and can cause an ifection. If it is an injury form the cat, you will need to keep the Dragon confined in a small area of the tank. Make sure that you hand feed and keep the water close by. We want as little movement as possible. The Dragon will need to be see by a Herp Vet for an X ray of the spine.
I am going to give you a link for Herp Vets in Ireland: http://www.livefoods.co.uk/vets.php#Ireland
There is no home treatment if this was an injury from the cat. The Vet will X ray and gove some Pain medication and possibly an anti inflammatory, to help reduce swelling and to try and get movement back. I am sure they will also give an antibiotic. Joan
Without an X ray we will not know if the spine is injured or broken or maybe just sprained or another type of injury. The Vet can treat it if it is a disc issue, sprain or not as serious as a break. The first thing is to start an antibiotic, and pain medication. An anti infammator will take swelling out from an injury and allow healing. The whole thing will depend on the Herp Vet's findings. Joan
