I have 3 red eared sliders. One of my turtles got a prolapses. I was keeping an eye on it when another turtle just bit her in the tail, leaving a hole where the prolapses was. I seperated the turtles and raised the water temp for my bitten slider. I was wondering if I should take it to the vet or if I could treat it at home? It seems to be doing fine, its energetic and is eating normal.

i read something about the prolapse that sometimes it goes out or something..they can return it back again but they might need some help..i don\'t know what kind of hole ur talking about but did it bleed? if she\'s fine maybe u can just call a vet and ask..

good luck and tell us what happens
