If Your Turtle Is Sick
Take It to a Veterinarian Immediately!

If you worry about cost, consider:
  • Treating a small issue is much, much cheaper than treating a big issue. 
  • Most problems start out small and can be treated relatively easily with home care.
  • Untreated small problems get bigger, and a lot more expensive, and may require hospitalization. 
  • Seeing a veterinarian
