Pinkish shin area

by Annmarie

Hi, My Red-neck slider has a pinkish area across the back of his top neck skin. I just noticed it afew days ago. Some green color seems to be filling in a bit. We put him in the lanai to sun and he often hides under our grill. My husband thinks he may have rubbed his head up against the grill. Is this a possible scenario? He always been so healthy and happy. He's quite large and older--not sure of his age.

Yes, it could be a burn. You could take your pet to the vet to be sure.
