cracked beak

by Linda
(Portsmouth UK)

My 12 year old marginated tortoise seems to have cracked his beak right across the top near his nostrils. It looks like it may have bled a little and his beak sticks out more now. i have bathed it with cooled boiled water. is there anything else i can do apart from going to the vet.

please consult a vet

if your turtle was bleeding a bit then you should had immediately consulted a vet as it may face respiratory problems also.

Sounds like the next step is to take your pet to the Vet. Good luck!
