3364. Tongue ulceration of red-eared slider. Chinese New Year Feb 16, 2018 10.30 am

Feb 16, 2018

This 25-year-old red-eared slider had no appetite for some weeks before the owner consulted me for "vomiting blood" on Dec 26, 2018 (Day 1). Tongue bleeding due to ulcers seen.

Weight was 1.85 on Day 1. Today (Day 21) it is 1.8kg. Syringe fed 100 pellets per day.
Today, I came in to feed her.


Still not eating pellets despite healed tongue. Continue syringe feeding 100 pellets per day divided into 3 feedings


Day 22
Gained 100 g after feeding 150 pellets yesterday morning (Chinese New Year)
Hard palate shows yellow plaque (healing ulcers)
Still not eating pellets by herself

Feb 19, 2018   6 pm. Goes home. Needs syringe feeding 150 pellets/day in 3 X. She gains 100 g bodyweight nowadays, if fed 150 pellets by syringe per day. Today back to 1.85 kg as during admission on Jan 26, 2018 (25 days ago) but with no bleeding mouth and ulcerations. There is a yellow plaque of scar on the hard palate as seen in the picture of Day 22.
