Speaking to ABC, Tucker said the 72-year-old man was lucky to have not been more seriously injured during the attack by the lizard, some species of which can grow to more than 8 feet (2.4 meters) in length.
The man was taken to hospital by CQ Rescue and is in a stable condition.
The reptile was said to have turned on the elderly couple when they tried to break a fight up between the goanna and their dog in their yard at their home near Airlie Beach in north Queensland on Thursday afternoon.
"The man suffered a very serious laceration and possible fracture of his right forearm as well as severe bleeding from his leg wound".
The man was airlifted to Mackay Base Hospital for treatment, GQ Rescue said on Twitter, while his wife was sent the Proserpine Hospital. The dog, a Jack Russell, was killed during the incident, according to an ABC report. "He was in considerable pain".
Queensland Ambulance Service supervisor Shane Tucker told ABC the claws of the goanna would have caused damage. "He has had quite significant injuries to his arm and leg and has had some blood loss".
"Definitely out of the ordinary".
"Unfortunately these lizards basically eat anything that's made out of meat, they're not fussy at all - so rodents, birds, they'll even eat other lizards, other reptiles, so something the size of a small dog or a cat is right up there on the menu for these guys", he said.
"They will scratch your arms up, but the bite is far worse than any of the scratches, those razor-sharp teeth just open you up very, very easily."
Mr Ryan had one piece of advice for anyone encountering a goanna - "I would highly recommend leaving it alone".
