3354. An 11-year-old female red-eared slider has not eaten for past 2 weeks

Surfed internet and came to Toa Payoh Vets









Other images using yellow light from otoscope. Tongue is swollen, pigmented and ulcerated but there are no bleeding ulcers






"When will she recover her appetite?" the owners wanted the slider back home as the children miss her.
"It is hard to say as the tongue is ulcerated, bruised and swollen," I explained. "The X-rays showed the right uterus is filled with white liquid. The eyelids were swollen earlier."


X RAY shows radio-dense material in right uterus would be consumed abnormal eggs with broken shells and infections. Impacted right uterus and cloaca. Syringe fed daily and oral antibiotics. One SC injection of baytril and pred on Day 1.
