1279. Swollen eyes in two terrapins - hospitalised



Recently I had 5 terrapins with swollen eyes. It takes a few days for the eyes to open, but not all will recover as much depends on the severity of the infections and the immune system.

The 2 cases here recovered after 7 and 17 days of hospitalisation. I will post the day 1 images later.
Chinese New Year's Eve is tomorrow Feb 9, 2013 and the terrapins are the last 2 to go home.



 is quite a joyous occasion to see patients recovering fully in both eyes. Owing to economics, some owners may want prompt results of a day or two to get the eyes opened, but this may not be possible.
