    MOUTH ROT, HELP!!!!!!

    I will make an appointment for him tomorrow. He was actually walking around and eating his cuttle bone tonight... He also has a dry looking pink powdery looking stuff right around the inside edge of his beak on the top. I am going to get him some more vitamins, I cant really figure out why this...

    MOUTH ROT, HELP!!!!!!

    I think my little guy has mouth rot. He has had a brown crust on the side of his face/ mouth for a little while, but he is sheding, so i din't pay much attention to it. But now he has not eaten for a week and his mouth is looking really white. I am looking for a medicine I can treat at home...

    Filing a beak?

    Yes mine is the birth defect turtle. He is doing great! I have trained him to find his food dish and where his water bowl is. I have tried to feed him on a flat rock, but because he can't see, he just opens his mouth and starts chopping, so he has to have it in a bowl so that the sides hold...

    Help!! eyes never opened after hatching 2 years ago

    his tail is short and sorta bulbous at the end, but he has a uva/uvb light now and yes I am using the ointment and do rub it a little, he really doesn't like it and pulls his head in and smears it all over, but I am putting it on 3 times a day and Tuesday will be the 7th full day of 3...

    Help!! eyes never opened after hatching 2 years ago

    So his eyes are probably stuck shut huh? That’s ok he really gets around well, he can see light, so knows where his hiding area is and he knows where his food is, he is in the living room and doesn't see us moving around all the time so that is good too. He will have a good life even if...

    Help!! eyes never opened after hatching 2 years ago

    I put some more water in the enclosure... he never really goes in there though. The attached pictures are of eyes and shell. He also has one toe nail that grows straight up instead of out. He only seems to have one nostril that is all the way open as well, the other is like grown over or...

    I have actually thought of the same thing... however, I am sure that it would be very expensive.

    Help!! eyes never opened after hatching 2 years ago

    I do leave a little water in his enclosure, and spray him with a water bottle a few times a day, like when I walk by I give him a quick spray. I put him in water every day to soak, but because of his blindness, the soak is in really shallow water like half an inch, so not to sure its making a...

    Help!! eyes never opened after hatching 2 years ago

    Well so far not much is happening. I think I may see some cracks for where the lids are supposed to open (kind of diagonal slits, more toward the top? is that where there eyes usually open and close?) And there is some movement of the lid skin when he "blinks" other than that no much going on...

    What Plants Should I Use For Enclosure??

    I added a small clay pot for a hide out, we'll see how it goes but he doesn't seem to want to be in it when I put him in it..he just wants to hang in his food dish :)

    I just put the first dose of ointment on! I have my fingers crossed that it will work. I will keep updating as the days go on.
