Oh thanks crying... I've ended up in tears today.. Desperately phoning around begging vets to at least see him and weigh him and give me dosage of antibiotics . They keep telling me they are not allowed to see animals outside their registered specialism . My vets returns on the 14 th so I'm a bit horrified at the thought of amputating it myself ( today anyway) but I can buy antibiotics over the counter here .. The dosages are high.. They knock me flat out. But reckon I can work it out. I'll try and upload a pic of his tail. So can you throw some other antibiotic names at me? I feel guilty.. Like Roger, I shouldn't have a reptile, I'm learning as I go along ( and really trying my best) but if I didn't taken the cats would have hacked at him .
