I believe it occurred when he jumped or fell off his 7ft caged and went out the doggy door. I took him to the vet on Mother's day 2 days later for shaking and not eating after he got out. But I live in Northwest AR and there is no GOOD reptile vet here. The vet I Googled for reptiles here in my town didn't think it was a big deal. He of course had never treated an iguana before much less a "Big Boy" as he is. But now his bottom gum line on that side is inflamed and maybe infected-I'd have to go to Tulsa to any kind of Rep vet- and who knows if that would even help?
I have only had him (foster at first) for 10 months. Not since he was a baby.
I'm still learning- Thanks for any help.
