Ya did good! Sorry I got called away in the middle of all this fun. Be sure to also watch it long term. You want to be sure it grows back correctly and it is able to naturally be worn down.


He also may have a little trouble eating for awhile, so keep that also in mind.

You done good....and I am sure he will eventually :)P) appreciate it...lol

Absolutely as Jacqui mentioned, keep an eye on it.. and perhaps if you cut his food up into smaller pieces that will aide him in eating while it heals....

How is your tort. doing? You did a good job. I think I would be too scared to do that but I think it is great that you were able to do it!:)
