Recommended Posts

This morning found my baby terrapin got a big swell on each of its cheeks.

Did a google it is likely some infection which a surgery is needed to remove the swelling.

 

Does anyone got lobang for a cheap and good vet that can perform the procedure?

Many years ago, when I still have the Terrapins, I brought it to the vet at Stevens Road due to some eye problem. Not exactly cheap, more ex than a GP.

But that's the least I can do for my pet of many years.

 

Good luck.

Thanks bro, got name or address? GP price still okay lah.. Those in overseas forums cost hundreds..

 

If there is no other option, at least can try them.. Heard horror stories about one at Jalan Kayu.. Hopefully the little one don't die at the hands of inexperienced vets..

Vets nowadays charge quite a lot , more than GP's everytime mine goes in costs about min $150 with some basic medication   (must be they think we all got PG or CHAS cards or what??)

Mine is Toa Payoh Vets run by father and son team; Son is more approachable and pleasant   

Good Luck to your terrapin;

thanks guys for your recommendations.  [thumbsup]

i think the baby is already having this issue when we purchased it not too long ago, just that we didn't notice until recently.

since it's our pet already... it's well being is our responsibility.. and it's also an education to my kids not to take living beings lightly, even though they may be cheap to bring home.

Since you got it from Pet Shop maybe they can tell you what is the issue as they do have knowledge about animals

 

Yes Pets are no cheaper than our own kids, nowadays and pets are like our own kids.... be it whatever animal form
