 Growth on leg

Hi,

Jango has got a small growth on his back leg, its round and prob 5mm in diameter. I will be taking him the vet, but obviously as its the weekend canít do anything until tomorrow at the earliest.

Has anybody had this problem with their collared? Also if he has to be operated on/leg removed how would this affect him?

i donít know, but i assume that lizards can get tumors and abcesses like mammals can. that would be my biggest concern. iím not going to lie, i donít know much about lizard diseases and iíve never had it happen to me before. i know iguanas and snakes can be operated on/put under anaesthesia but i would be afraid of putting something as small as a collared under because anaesthesia alone could kill them. hopefully the vet youíre going to is one that specializes in lizards and can help you. bestof luck, and keep us updated

Yeah, I think it looks like a tumor. I also have bearded dragons which I know can be operated on, but obviously they are a lot bigger. Jango is only very small.

I have a really good vet that specialises in reptiles so Iím going to make an appointment to see him on Thursday.

Jango seems in really good spirits and is still running and jumping around, will let you know how we get on.

Hi!

Did you ever find anything out about this? My lizard has a fairly large growth on his leg which has resulted in pussing.

Any Suggestions?
