My turtle has sores or holes on it’s shell

​Remove your turtle immediately from the water and keep it dry. To prevent your turtle from dehydrating, soak them for 30 minutes twice a day. Sponge your turtle off with Betadine or Nolvasan several times a day, especially after soaking them.

Keep your turtle warm. Drying out the affected area aids in the healing process. Take your turtle to the vet if the problem persists.

You can prevent this condition with a proper diet and clean water.
