hey for all of those who have been on this site for a while may remember a post i had about my biggest red ear slider reese who is 6 inches ,she lost her finger nail,so as directed by the members on this site i but her in a dry tank and put betadine on her 2x a day two months later she is perfectly normal and lives with her boyfriend my other res mac. and is doing great my question is will it ever grow back or will she be handicapped for the rest of her life?

Depending on how it got ripped off i don\'t believe that it will grow back. But hey as long as her boyfriend still loves her it\'s ok

If the nail bed wasn`t injured, it should grow back. But it will take a long time to do it.
