    my brother stepped on my blue tongues abdomen around the middle, not too hard as he lifted his foot after realising he was there

    Lizard seemed ok initially, then it began hissing and acting as if he was in pain, became droopy and his tongue was hanging out of his mouth. I took him to two vets both of which don’t handle lizards and my only option is leave him in his tank with heat lamps on

    He seems to be doing a bit better now, eyes open and moving around slightly. There’s no signs of blood or injury just how he’s acting and he’s still opening his mouth as if he’s in pain and he seems unable to move his back legs

    Will he be alright? What should I do to help and how do I tell what’s wrong with him if anything or if he was just in shock?

    Thanks

    Where are you from? There should be a reptile vet somewhere near you!
