Trying to treat an open wound on my turtle...help
Help Save Clyde
Last night my dog got ahold of my box turtle . He is about 8 months old. He has 3 puncture wounds on the top of his shell and missing a scale or two on the bottom sides from the dogs teeth. I stopped the bleeding with Betadine and have wrapped him up so his wounds are not exposed to the air. I have read that the main thing to look out for is infection under the shell and am not too sure what to put on the open wound to prevent the infection. Any suggestions?
