3287. A constipated red-eared slider. Day 7 of in-patient treatment for constipation.

Day 7.

Constipated slider still had not passed stools on her own.  Give oil laxative for the past 5 days.
 Loose oily stools were seen in the swollen anal area today. Such stools were also cleared on Day 5. (video).

These were removed by forceps. Gastric impaction should be cleared by today.
