49. Cloacal impaction in a red-eared slider

May 27, 2016

Not eating 4 days. Came at 9.30 am. X rays showed obstruction of cloaca. After extraction of over 50 stones and one broken egg shell by Dr Daniel, the terrapin felt good. She ate more than 30 pellets at 6.30 pm (see video).

 The terrapin has recovered her appetite. See video.


She had egg binding earlier. I noted stones and pebbles inside her gut and informed the owner to remove all stones from the tank. But those inside the gut passed out and obstruct the cloaca, leading to difficulty in urination and pooping. So the terrapin stopped eating for 4 days from today, May 27, 2016 (see above images).
