Our turtle\'s front left leg is not really being used. Just a little bit, It looks like its hurt.
If broken does it need a spilt or if spranged, what should I do.
She moves it, It looks different than it normally does. and she can\'t bring it into her shell..she limps or hold it in same place.. Normally she is running but now the lil leg is hurt..
My heart is just breaken.. Our family is just so attached to her..
Please can you help us.
Thank U
Tatiana

Take her to the vet. Here is a list of herp vets by state there may be others. http://www.anapsid.org/vets/index.html#vetlist
The problem needs to be checked out and if theere is a serious problem such as Metabolic Bone Disease it needs to be handled. The only one to tell you is a vet.
