Hi there! I'll try and help you with your concerns but I need to ask a couple of questions so I can give you the best recommendations. First, is Turtle having any incontinence issues? Basically is she able to use the litter box properly? How long has she had this problem and was there any initiating cause?

Also, it may be helpful if you're able to upload a photo for me so that I can see how extensive the problem is.

Thank you
