    good luck. Hopefully your mom will learn more animal responsibility. You seem to be the mature one in that family when it comes to the welfare of an animal.

    Sure he was inexpensive. So was my cat Sam. He was $35 at the SPCA. There is no difference between an inexpensive cat and an inexpensive turtle, besides the fact one is warm and fuzzy and the other is small and cold blooded. They are both living creatures and I give you a pat on the back for wanting to give the best care for your animal.

    :)Good News!:)

    Sunny was seen by a reptile expert. I was told to heat up the water to 84 degrees fahrenheit. Sunny was given some proper medical attention, and is improving. You could see her in the photos I posted recently in the Aquatic Turtles forum.

    YAY, SUNNY!!

    That's great news! Good job working your mom into going to the vet, and keep us posted on her recovery.

    I would like to know what medication and dose the vet prescribed. You didn't mention the vets name. What was the total cost in the end?

    You also said "a reptile expert", not a vet.
    I hope you aren't listening to some kid at a pet shop!
    A serious respiratory infection needs antibiotics, not just heat.

    The reptile expert's name was Robert something...Not sure about the medication's name and dose, my parents gave it to Sunny, not me.

    Robert's advice was free, but the medicine cost somewhere from 30$ to 55$

    good to hear she seems to be doing better though i hope she's separated from your other turtles because sickness can travel without you knowing it between animals.
