Painter Turtle illness
by Jessica Fouliard
Hi, I have two painter turtles, but one seems to have problems. My one turtle has puffy white stuff around her eyes. She had this problem once before so we took her to the vet and they gave us eye drops. We gave them to her everyday and it went away..now it's been a couple months and it's coming back again. Is there something besides just the eye drops that will help with this problem? Also she recently developed a sore on her right front leg..I think she bit at it because it's bloody..she's not bleeding out but you can tell she was bleeding. I don't know what I could use so that it won't get infected. The other turtle we have is just fine so I don't think the problem is from the tank..they have a big tank..a nice heat lamp they like to sun under and a big filter that runs constantly. Please help I want my turtle to get better!! thanks!
