Probably a silly question, but i am just wondering if 2% iodine from the pharmacy is good to use on my turtle\'s shell or to soak her in?

thanx

i don\'t know about percentage but when i did the treatment on my turtle,the solution of the betadine(similar product)had to be the color of a weak tea...(u mix it with water)
just to remind u,those product can cause failure of the liver and/or the kidney...if u not sure if ur turtle have fungus or shell rot(i assume that\'s why u want to soak ur turtle)i suggest u try a bath with a solution of salt and water for beginning...or if u can afford it,a visit to a good herp vet would be a good idea...
