When should I take my turtle to the vet?
There are many instances when you must take your turtle in to see the vet, such as for viruses and respiratory infections. There are times when your turtle needs antibiotics. If you can’t figure out what is wrong and you’ve used your other resources like books, the Internet, and other reptile owners, you should see the vet. The sooner you take care of the problem, the less the bill will be.
Once you start seeing a veterinarian, stick with the same one. They will get to know your turtle and may be able to solve the problem over the phone. It’s all up to you, remember the vet could be your best friend when it comes to your turtle’s health. If you need them, use them.
