Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and I'm happy to help. Please reply to me via the website (www.justanswer.com).
Working together through the internet can be difficult as I cannot see what you have witnessed with your companion. It would help me greatly to be able to see what you are seeing. Will you please attach pictures or video in strong lighting with excellent clarity showing your concern? There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video at no charge. If your files won’t load, they may be too large for the site. You can also use FREE websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then copy the link, paste into the chat box, send it and I can access them. I do offer both domestic and international texting from my cell to your own and you may see a pop-up for this from the website. This can make sending pictures/video easier. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response. NOTE: If you are using the app and send attachments, they will go to customer service. The turn around time for customer service to post the submitted attachments varies up to a few hours. If you would like me to receive these immediately, please visit the website and utilize the info above.
Poor thing. I definitely see what you're seeing.
Do you know if any physical trama has happened?
Are they using the limb at all?
What bulbs are being used for the habitat? How old are the bulbs? What type of UV rays do they offer your companion, if any?
What vitamin supplementation are you using, if any, and how often is it provided?
Can you tell me more about the diet and how it's fed?
Thanks so much. I am worried about physical trauma here which is not uncommon when baby dragons are kept together. It's common for one to sustain a bite from the other if they're mistaken for food. An examination would be most ideal. In the best of situations, this could be swollen due to infection but the potential for bones being crushed does exist and x-rays may be recommended based on what your vet finds on examination. If the bones are crushed and there's no hope of repair, your vet may recommend amputation. If you need help finding a vet that can see them, please visit http://www.anapsid.org/vets/ I would implement a 2x daily soak in tepid water up to the shoulders for 20 minutes each day until they can be examined, as well as separating the dragons for good measure.
It has been my honor to assist you today, I hope this information has been helpful as I take a great deal of pride in my work. I will be standing by if you have any questions I did not address, please feel free to reply and I will respond further. Please be sure to leave a positive rating or issue thanks before signing off today so that I know you received my response above. It’s imperative for this to be done for the website to compensate me for helping you.
Sure thing. Let me know if you need any additional support.
