My 8 yr old got a red ear slider. We got him may 9 he was active at first and eating we notice at times he would have mouth open. Two weeks later he was only basking in light not active and mouth open more. Then last week my son said mom jet has rabies. I notice he had bubbles out of his mouth. He refuse to eat. I took him to the vet this Friday the vet gave him ceftazidime. The vet tech gave us meds said give him shot daily but I notice on bag says one every 72 hrs so now I'm confused. They gave him one shot in vet office. Since got him home he seams have mouth open more making odd noise and is lifeless. I got him a heater for water keeping it at 78.8 degrees. I found out from petco worker that this isn't his first visit to vet in fact the worker said he just finish his meds for same issues having now before they put him out to be sold she said he was having issues before but recover fast. I'm not happy that they sold me a turtle that had been sick now dealing with same illness. Does anyone know how long it take to see improvement in jet? I'm i to give meds what vet tech said do give shot daily or by the liable on bag saying every 72 hrs? I'm so scared of losing him and having see my son be hurt his pet died. It's hurts watching jet suffer so much. Also what temp should his water be is 78.9 degrees ok for him?
