My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and reptile rescue.

Please start the Turtle on Benebac which is a probiotic can can be found at a Pet shop. This will aid with the gut flora. You can also give the turtle some Canned Pumpkin, not pie filling which is a high fiber food and should help with the diarrhea. If the Probiotic Benebac and the pumpkin do not help the Vet may have to give something stronger for the diarrhe. I would try the two things I suggested firt and if it does not clear, please see the Herp Vet for treatment. If you need a her vet I can locate some for you with a State. if I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
