day 10 of meds – eating (and pooping) normally. fed her just pellets and cuttlebone.
doctor advised to hold off vegetables until she’s strong enough.
haven’t seen her bask yet, she just stays under the ramp.
she’s also lethargic, not playing with her marbles or moving around the tank (tank has shallow water).
eyes seem normal, not swollen/big/irritated.
water temps at 82F, there’s some skin shedding on her neck and front limbs.
basking temps at 90F.
it’s disconcerting to witness your turt’s different moods – active and playful one minute and then suddenly becoming lethargic and slow.
upcoming check up this friday. hope she’s on her way to recovery!
wish us luck!
