: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
Yes it is best to take him to a vet. I know of cases where the diagnosis for such a condition was also due to a disorder of the digestive system and also torn airsac in the lungs. Either way it is better to get qualified medical assistance (if possible).
