I think my iguanas arm is dislocated, he can slightly move…

Customer Question
Hi so I think...

Hi so I think my iguanas arm is dislocated, he can slightly move it, but it is swollen and has been about 2 days since he fell off the table. I am trying to find a vet in my area Burlington WA. But idk what I should do now. He lets me grab it and move it without getting irritated but I can only move it backward not forward like it’s stuck

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the iguana's name?

His name is Gannon

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gannon?

No he is pretty healthy, except he lost his tail about 3 weeks ago

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
