Default My notophthalmus have some bundles

I have one of them with several bundles under their skin. It seems not to affect their behavior nor health, but I would like to know wich could be the origin.

Thanks

I've never seen that before! Are they soft or hard? How long has it had the lumps?

Honestly, I would separate it from the others. Maybe someone with more knowledge can tell you what they are, but to me they look like they could be some sort of parasite living under the skin.

I'm with Erin - seperate it asap until you ascertain what those lumps are. Tumors are most likely but parasites run a close second.

Sorry ravenous. Bad translation.

The most correct word I think is lumps.

My first group of notophthalmus has them all those lumps.

I have a new group, and one of them has get a lump so, it should be some kind of infection.

Has anyone have such problem?

Default Re: My notophthalmus have some bundles

Hi,

Sorry to chime in so late.

Lumps under the skin are most likely to be abscesses generally in my opinion, although parasites or tumours would also be significant possibilities. I would suggest that you really need to get the animal to a vet, and have appropriate samples taken from the lumps. This should allow distinguishing between the possibilities, and give the best course of action/treatment.

Hope this helps,

Bruce.

I have a new simtomp.

Lumps has move from some individual to another, so it cannot be tumors

general consensus is some sort of parasite - you need a vet.

Default Re: My notophthalmus have some bundles

A long Time ago i had an Axolotl, which had something like this. There came a white worm out of it after it was opened with a medical knife. Some days i made baths with "Kaliumpermanganat". I have never seen something like this again.
Today i would take it to a special Vet, to know what kind of parasite it was. Might be that there are more of them in the body.
Greetings Olli
