Surgical management of a wound in a red-earred slider: by Dr. John Choi (All Creatures Veterinary Centre / Tai Po Veterinary Clinic).
On the 16th August 2012, an owner of a 7 year old, female, red-earred slider (no name); presented to us after more than 2 months with a non-healing open wound of the ventral neck. This had lead to advanced swelling of the neck and shoulders, reducing appetite and mobility, and causing difficult breathing. It was life-threatening condition. It was diagnosed with bacterial infection secondary to an inciting wound.
[ 硬塊有4cm大. The removed caseous material was approx. 4cm diameter. ]
After surgery and medicine, the area healed within 2 weeks with gradual steady improvement with appetite, breathing, brightness, mobility etc. The owner was very satisfied with the outcome.
1 month later, the owner returned for a recheck photo. If you look closely, the terrapin is smiling!
