1305. A young terrapin has 2 ear abscesses.

A young terrapin had two ear abscesses. Anaesthesia is required to lance the abscesses and drain away the pus. Without anaesthesia, the terrapin will just withdraw his head inside his shell and nothing can be done. Some do bite in self defence. Clean water is important to prevent ear infections.
As at 14 days after surgery, no news from the owner mean no problem after surgery.
