Yes, use the paper clip icon in the tool bar to upload a Oic.
Let me ask you do you have a basking bulb ot were you sold a Infra Red bulb for basking?
A Basking bulb is full spectrum.
I am sorry I responded tu assist with the iggy and not a cat which needs to go to a different expert.
If you would like to place a question about your cat someone can assisit you and I would be happy to assist with the iggy.
The only Pic I got that opened was the cat. Was the light that caused the burn a red light?
We have experts on 24 hours a day. I am working on your answer.
Burns demanding o m how serious the burns are. If the burn was from a red light the burn could be a Thermal burn which means the burn is deeper than the skin and the area may need to be debrided to remove dead tissues to fully treat the area..
If the burn is only the slin which is a 1sr degree Medicatuiburn and no blisters, then it is treated with Silvadene cream. It is a prescription medication and it needs to come from a Vet.
If the skin is blistered, then as I saud, rge Vet would beed to remove the dead tissue and treat with Antibiotics. Burns are easily infected which can kill your Iggy.
Never use a Red bulb as they are only for cold nights and not for basking. The best night jeat bulb is a black night bulb. The heat lamp for the daytime should be a white full spectrum basking bulb.
I can locare a Herp Vet for you with a Herp Vet if you sypply a state.

THey may have to debrid the scar and do a fraft all depends on what the Vet finds when he examines him.
I cannot tell for sure, but the burn looks deeper than just the sscales and skin. The may have to debrid the area, and give Antibiotics and pain meds. It looks bad.
