Unhappy Cut her nose?

Hey guys
So tonight, about half an hour ago I got Pumpkin out to see she has cut her nose. It doesn't look too bad, it has a little bit of dry blood in it, I can't find any blood in her cage so I doubt she bled a lot and I think it might be bruised (but I can't really tell)
I have no idea how she did it. I got her out a couple hours ago and it was fine.
Just wondering if I should do anything. Should I clean it? I did try to wipe it with a wet cotton bud but it was impossible because she wouldn't stay still. I also tried to take a picture but again, she wouldn't stay still.
Anything I can do or is it a case of leaving it to her to clean herself?

Default Re: Cut her nose?

I'd leave her be if it's not actively bleeding. She could have been climbing and bumped herself falling or scratched herself on something. Just check her toys and the edges of her cage for any sharp edges and she'll take care of the rest.
