PostSubject: Injured Giant Day Gecko   6/1/2008, 11:13 am

Pimple got attacked by Kiki *one of our cats* a few hours ago. He got her out to soak her as she was disturbed when sheading the other day and some how *I wasnt in the room* Pimple jumped from his hand and Kiki mauled Pimple.
Bad wounds. No bleeding. Up along the back are gashes, taken the skin off.

Any suggestions on what to do? She was put into her gentle soaking water but he didnt try to shed her and put her back in the tank. She is currently hiding.

Grrr I always tell him to make sure the cats arent in the room! *shakes head*

So...any suggestions?

xxxxxxxx

Hi Connie.

If you've cleaned the wound with warm water, there's not much to do except wait for time and nature to take it's course, healing Pimple.

I would suggest however, applying a thin layer of Betadine on the broken skin. Do this to prevent infections from occuring. I've used it on my skink before and it worked wonders! In any case, go for Betadine ointment over creams. A thin layer of ointment provides a better boundary for the wound, and is water resistant to a certain extent. Just be sure it doesn't get into Pimple's eyes or mouth.

Another thing that you would need to take into serious consideration is a clean enclosure at least until the wound properly heals.

*Betadine contains Povidone-iodine (PVPI) with a range of 9 to 12% concentration. Any generic/derivative brand names with similar chemical composition will do the work just as well (in case you fail to get Betadine from your local pharmacy).

Good luck and keep us posted!
