Exclamation Bitten pad on back toe, i need help!

So in the process of trying to get my new chin to get along with my beige, somehow my beiges toe got bitten. Its not bitten completely off, but he's got a bite into the pad. Its bleeding a bit, not too much though.

So my question is, should I just put neosporin on it and keep an eye out for swelling/redness? should i clean it in any way? what about bedding in the cage? i use pine shavings, the good stuff that isnt dusty, is it okay to keep him on that? gonna be no baths for awhile i know that...

So.. any help and advice would be greatly appreciated. im gonna go clean his cage really well so he'll have very clean conditions. hopefully this hurricane doesnt rain on my head too much while im cleaning.

Thanks.

Sounds like you have it all figured out Keep his bedding clean and dab a little neosporin on his foot a couple times a day. Watch out for swelling and redness. It should totally heal within a few days.

If your chin is one of those who likes to eat Neosporin (some of them do), you can also use a small amount of peroxide. It is drying (a disadvantage) but it decomposes into perfectly natural bioproducts (water and hydrogen gas).

Chins are always getting their toes bitten off and such, don't fret too much, he should be just fine!
