    Hi ~

    How does the inside of his mouth look?

    Because this genus is sensitive, I recommend an appointment with an exotics vet to sort things out.

    Infection could be your biggest worry.

    Were you able to locate vets in your country via the link I shared?

    I'm glad you took him in! Is it silver sulfadiazine cream?

    I hope he mends quickly!
