Eyes Won't Open,

by Alisha Wylie

I have a turtle, and his little eyes have been shut for over two weeks, I looked it up and it said it was an vitiam A problem, so I have been giving him turtle Vitiam A eyedrops, and he can't see to eat good so I've been making sure to hand feed him every two days, so nutrition isn't the problem, Idk what else to try.

Eye problems are serious and need quick attention. If the eyes have been closed for two weeks, you should really see a vet.

I got all my stuff from, Zoo Meds, U can find it in most pet stores and on amazon for pretty cheap. One thing that works really good for him is the Sulfa dip. I put him in some water with that dip for a while and his eyes open most of the time. the eye drops are called Repti Turtle eye drops from Zoo Meds. theyre like three dollars on amazon.com. and last a long time. u give them to ur turtles once a weeks to prevent eye swelling.
