I picked her up after a few days of not handling her, and right away I see this on her tail. There is a new "wound" further up her tail. I'm unsure what to do as I cannot afford a vet at the moment. I have been cleaning the "wounds" and dabbing betadine on them. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
It is unlikely these are burns - her heat lamp is hanging and her floor mat isn't that hot/ she lives alone besides a cricket or 2 for a midnight snack.
