    I have a b&w tegu about 4-5 months old. Had him out for his free roam time and turned my back for a second to thaw some pinkies and he pulled a laptop charger on himself. Now he’s limping on his front right foot. Being Sunday nothing is open. I don’t think it is broken. There is no deformation but it does appear to be bruised. Is there anything I can do to help? Is there anyway to know if is serious? I guess I’m asking if he will be ok for a day or 2 until I can get him into see the vet? Thanks

    The “index” finger looks like it could be broke

    Nothing to do but keep him in his enclosure until you can have him checked out.

    No broken bones. Just a bruise. They gave him some reptile aspirin and said he’s a little over weight but otherwise in great health.
