Please help, Norton got stuck in water changer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm not home but my mom just texted me that Norton got stuck in the water changer and is really torn up. He is eating, but bottom sitting a bit.

Is there anything I can tell her to do until I get home?

I feel so bad for him he must be in so much pain :(

Fingers Crossed hes ok.

You may need to add some salt to stop infections etc.

I always have a sponge over the end of my water changer for this reason.

Curiosity and the cat is nothing like that of a Goldfish.

I always have mesh over it, but I guess it came off when she was doing the wc. Will salt make his injuries hurt?

Maybe maybe not?

But not as much as a bacterial infection will

A pic and the Diagnosis form would be helpful, so we can come up with a way to prevent infection if it is necessary. :)

I will get pictures up when I get home later, I don't even know what shape he's in to be honest! I'm at school so I have no way of taking pics right now, but when I get home I'll add more info :)

Thanks!

Turns out my mom was being overly dramatic! She made it sound like he was completely shredded, but turns out his tail just has a big tear in it. I might put some salt in in the next few days, but other than that it looks like he should be fine! Sorry about that and thanks for your help :)
