Turtle Health Care

Our Turtle Health Care page is loaded with remedies for good turtle health.  We carry everything you will need to help prevent most turtle health problems without going to a vet. Did you know soaking your turtle in one gallon of warm water with a teaspoon of sea salt could prevent most health issues from occurring in turtles? That’s right, simply add one teaspoon of sea salt to a gallon of warm tap water and soak your turtle in it 3 times a week for about 20 minutes at a time. The salt will help in preventing bacterial growth. Try this inexpensive remedy on your turtles and see for yourself what a difference it makes in the health of your turtle. Sometimes an aquatic turtle will develop an eye infection due to poor water quality. After fixing the water quality issue try using our Nature Zone Turtle Eye Drops to aid in the cure and prevention of turtle eye infections. “See Turtle Tank Filters for more information on water quality”. You should condition your turtle tank water every week with one of our Nutrafin Turtle Conditioner Blocks. Just one block treats up to 20 gallons of tap water.  And each conditioner block contains Calcium, a mineral needed for strong shells and bones. If your turtle will not eat, try some Zilla Jump Start Appetite Stimulant. Even the most stubborn turtles will benefit from this product. The Zoo Med Turtle Bones are also a great way to offer your turtle the calcium they need for strong bones and shells. Add one to the tank and let it float on top of the water for your turtle to nibble off of.  If you should have any questions on your turtle’s health or need help in finding a product, please call us toll free at 1-800-277-9286.
