What antibiotics are needed? ANd do I need to take him to a vet to get the proper meds?? The "floating like a cork" thing is exactly what my turtle has. What kind of vet do I need? Does it need to be a reptile vet? thanks for the help
:I had the same problem with a Malaysian Box Turtle once. His airways were swollen and partially blocked with muscuos making it hard for him to release air from his lungs when he dove. Kept him floating like a cork. Treatmernt with the appropriate antibiotics resolved the problem. I suggest a visit to the vet is in order.
