i have full UVA/UVB reptile light i purchased from a herp distributor associate of mine, i use it every other day. i've already asked him about the shell thing, and he says that isn't the problem and would repair itself, as i sorta screwed it up when i tore a piece off a month ago while it was shedding
the one on left is the sick one
ok im sorry to above responder who told me about RI... but as i just observed him basking, i noticed a small, and I MEAN SMALL minut thing about of its nose, like a miniature bubble, then it disappeared... and this is when the turtle is dry. but again the turtle doesn't open its mouth gasping for air... so what am i to believe?
i picked up turtle, put it close to my ear as possible to see if i hear anything abnormal. at times a small bubbly sound?
ok i just talked to my herp expert associate just now and described the turtle, he suggested 2 things. either to raise the temperature of the water and air (where is basks) to let the turtle kill whatever may be inside him (pretty sure it may be infected), or to somehow find something called "Baytril" (enrofloxacin) which is an antibiotic, and find a way to administer it whether through a vet or through him as he's done injections before.
anyone familiar with this Baytril and is it only obtainable through vets?
