How was the Dragon injured?
Is he housed alone?
Thank-you. Two Dragon should never be housed together, because of the danger of injury or loss of limb, or tail. The Dragon will need to see a Herp Vet for treatment of the foot and leg. For now you can treat by cleaning the area with a Diluted Betadine and warm water and then followed by some Neosporin. Depending on the severity of the injury, the Vet may have to amputate the foot, if the break is too severe. They will put the Dragon on an Antibiotic for infection. I can locate a Herp Vet for you with a State, if you do not have one. Please let me me kow if you need me to locate one for you.
This is a Link for Herp Vets: http://www.anapsid.org/vets/wisconsin.html There are two Herp Vets listed in the link in Madison WI. Please let me know how the little Dragon does. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 Stars.
Wanted to check in on your little Dragon. Did the Herp Vet see him? How is the leg doing?
Continue to clean the leg with the Betadine and Neosporin and hopefully we can prevent infection and the inflammation will reduce. Please watch for the foot turning black as that can mean the tissue is dying and there is n circulation in the foot.

How is the little Dragon doing? Was hoping to get an update report on recovery.
