Turtle Care: Natural Pet Care Tips for Pet Turtles
Modified on Nov 03, 2022
Turtles may seem like entirely self-sufficient pets, but they can get sick just like any other animal. Pet turtles can have trouble with their shells including shell rot, respiratory infections, or suffer fungal and other infections.
Caution: Respiratory infections are particularly dangerous to turtles. If your pet shows mucus at the nose or mouth, is making odd vocal sounds, or is swimming crookedly, he/she should be immediately taken to a vet.
