I have red eared sliders and when trying to get my filter running I used my mouth to siphon the water to get it running and some nasty turtle water got into my mouth but I dont think I swallowed it.

Should I take any antibiotics? Should I be overly concerned? Any suggestions

I don\'t know myself, since it hasn\'t happened to me but I would go get checked by a doctor, tell him what happened and also tell him the concern with salmonella since he is not a herp vet he may not make the connection. Hope for the best, we will.:D

You don\'t need to worry about the water geting into your mouth. Its ok you woint get sick ebcause you did not ingest enough to make you sick. The acid in your stomach will make the bad water disolve. my boyfriend does that stuff all the time, accidentlly geting water in his mouth I mean. Have a great day! Hope this helps...
