Grooming for Terrapins

A terrapin’s scales should appear healthy, shiny and clean. If there are discoloured patches, or missing scales, then you should talk to your vet. Causes include fighting, nutritional deficiencies and poor water quality.

If you are worried about your pet's health, visit the Petfix DIY Triage Checker or Ask a Vet. If it is urgent take your pet to your vet immediately.
