my baby red eared slider

by Dominique Zuniga

Hi, my baby RES Bûba is sick. He is floating sideways,never wants to swim and always sits on the rock, won't open one eye, doesn't have an appetite and has sores on the side of his front leg joints? we don't want to go to a vet to have to pay tons of money for healing him and would rather do it at home

Take him to the vet
by: Susana

I recommend you take him to the vet immediately... My painted turtle was the same way his eyes were shut he wouldn't eat and of course by him not eating he wouldn't have a bowel movement... The doctor will give him some vitamin A... Call a pet store and see if they have Repti Turtle eye drops and also you're going to have to take your turtle out the water put him in some type of taupe make sure he still have his UVB and the other light to keep him warm...
My turtle was sick for almost a month I took him to the vet once a week for his Vitamin A the doctor thought he was going to die because he was lifeless.. I went on Amazon and read the reviews on the turtle eye drops and I purchased it..
The key for this product to work it must go into the turtles I it worked for me not to mention I did a lot of praying you know the last thing we want is for anything bad to happen to our Turtles.

Keep it slow and steady.
