Hope I can get some ideas here. Someone brought their little 3" RES (Red Eared Slider) to me and when I looked I could NOT believe the HUGELY and GROSSLY swollen hind leg. The leg on this turtle is swollen half the size of the animal itself. She said that she had taken it to the vet and it got antibiotics but to no avail. It was brought to me because they know I keep turtles and run a kind of informal "rescue" center for reptiles at my home. I have tried soaking the animal in water with sea salt, in water with Melafix, it has full spectrum natural sunlight every day and is eating normally and seems normal in every way except for that LEG. I must get some pics and post here, but am wondering if I can do anything else in the meantime. I have had this animal now for four weeks with no apparent improvement (maybe just a little, the swelling seems to have gone down a bit). Thanks!
