2942. A young terrapin with swollen closed eyes. A young terrapin with extended neck

March 8, 2016

Toa Payoh Vets do see at least one terrapin or turtle per week for the past 3 years. I find them interesting.

Terrapins, the size of 50-cent coins, would be around 1-3 months old. They are sold at around $5.00 in the pet shops. Some pet shops have some good quality terrapins imported from the USA for sale but some are sickly.

These two cases are typical of diseases seen at Toa Payoh Vets
