Even though the bleed alot, or at least it seems like it. Your friends turtle will be fine. It would be better to remove it from the tank until the bleeding stops. If it is really bad put some septic powder on it or even dip it in sugar. Sugar is a septic and will help with the bleeding. Feed the turtle foods rich in Vit. K. Beet greens are a good choice.
