Hey,

I live in Mid Ga where it is very common to find E. Box and other species in need of emergency assistance. Hopefully , someone will have the info that I need.

I have found an Eastern Box with minor shell damage ( bubbling in the underside lower right area ) and an open wound ( by the bubbling in the rear extremety, the wound is deep, no apparent bone loss but tissue damage appears extensive ).
I have rinsed the wounds and made available lots of water to avoid dehydration. My question revolves around wound care. I live approx 70 miles from a vet and am curios to the types of agricultural grade antibiotics available and the safety to herps.
Anyone with info , please email me at [email protected] . I am also curios on general first aid and health care for herps.

thanx
