Found it! Very tip of tail has a little bitty scab on it. Also found out that my son had gone in yesterday to pick her up/pet her and she protested strongly (ran like crazy). In the process, she finally administered her first good tail whips. Drew blood twice!
First I thought it might be Steve's blood, but upon a magnifying glass inspection, found the wound on her tail.
I have given her a betadine bath. Do I need to put neosporin on it?
Thanks, Cyndi & Kyo (I do NOT like men in my house!)
I'll ignore the "men in my house" comment long enough to answer. LOL
Betadine bath, and a bit of Neosporin. After a few days (and a good scab develops) let it be. Tail tips are mostly dry scales and not too harmful. Notice clearly the injury point and the area immediately surrounding it. If you notice any discoloration or change around the injury area after a week or so, a vet visit may be in order (dry ganrene).
