3051. A 2-year-old red-eared slider has a swollen neck again

Mar 11, 2017

Fluid accumulates in the lower neck area and then the upper neck. Same as in Dec 2016. What is the cause? Swelling disappeared after aspiration of 1 ml of clear fluid and given antibiotics and anti-inflammatory. The slider did vomit blood once and slowly recovered his appetite.

But the swelling recurs 2 months later and the slider loses appetite.

Heart, lung or kidney disease disease?

An X-ray is done this time. Is there an obstruction in the throat area?
