Sorry guys for my extended absence; of course it's trouble brewing that brings me back.
I fed Roz & Hurley this morning and I guess Hurley got a little excited in the feeding frenzy and bit Roz's face. She's fine of course, she looks p-o'ed, lol, but still running around fighting him for crickets.
I held her for a while and dabbed her cut with a q-tip; only looks to be a few millimeters (like 3 maybe?), it's just behind her left eye almost on the top of her head and it is in no way gushing blood, it's just bleeding a little bit, slowly. I pretty much got it to stop with light q-tip pressure.
So I've come here to ask my fellow seasoned collared owners who have had this problem (no guesses from those who haven't please), would you attempt to disinfect, ointment and quarantine this little girl, or should I let her be and not stress her out?
I'll try to get a picture if it's needed.
