tortoise wound

by nicole mccomb

the other day my african sulcatta rubbed the bottom of his shell raw on a brick in the backyard. we do not have the money to incur a vet bill. so we got some antiseptic soak from the vet and soak him in a kiddie pool everyday. we then pu neosporin on the wound. we have isolated him in a clean area and wash his cage everyday. he has a good appetite and shows no sign of infection. my concerd is getting the bleeding to stop. this happen on the 15th of june. he has a little pool of blood under him from the night and when he walks around during the day he drips drops of blood about dime size. do you know how we could stop the bleeding???
