Hi, Judy. May I know the cost of treating a red-eared slider whose eyes are swollen shut? My turtle has been like this for about 3 weeks and seems to be gasping from time to time. Would treatment fees be included in the consultation fees mentioned in the website? Kindly advise. Thank you.

The costs of treatment including consultation depends on how long the slider takes to recover. Some recover within 7 days and some take a few weeks. If there is gasping, there will be respiratory tract infections. As a guide, the costs for 7 days of hospitalisation is around $170 - $200 including nursing and medication.
