    Hi all, I noticed today that my 10 year old common musk turtle has a white growth on one of her legs, it is a slight lump and is around pea sized. It must have appeared fairly recently as a picture I took 4 days ago shows nothing on her leg. It's probably not a coincidence that this appeared...

    Hi, I have seen 2 vets and both agree that Kobo, my 2 year old Savannah Monitor, needs to be on an oral antifungal. Problem is it can cause liver damage. He has 3 different bacteria and is on shots for that, and iodine wash and antibacterial ointment on the spot the vet biopsied, and now a...

    I've had my two leucistic axies since July, but I believe they're about a bit less than a year old. Other than the fungal issue we may be having right now, we haven't had any problems other than a horrible time when my boy swam into the vacuum and cut himself. My female axie is acting normal...

    Hi there! I have two map turtles and they have both have these white patches on them since I bought them a few weeks ago. I understand it could be some sort of fungus but I don't think it's this as it doesn't look furry or fuzzy. I know it could also be mineral deposits or calcium deficiency...
