Turtle bleeding

Hi, By accident the turtle in the garden got stepped on. there was a sound as if the shell broke. The turtle retracted into it's shell and there was some bleeding, then after a while it started moving again and walking. We are not sure where the bleeding came from. We cleaned it up and put it in a warm dark place to rest. It is also eating some lettuce. Is the turtle going to be ok?

Any time there is bleeding, especially if you can't see it, it's vet time. The vet can do a thorough check and will know what to do. A vet who specialized in reptiles is best, but any vet is better than no vet.
