DIY Shell Rot Treatment

Help your turtle heal from a mild case of shell rot! Use a toothbrush to scrub your pet’s shell clean and remove any dirt or algae, then pat your turtle dry. Use a plastic scraper to clean out any white spots. Soak a cotton swab with either Provodone-iodine or Nolvosan and wipe the solution onto your pet’s shell. Put your turtle in a dry container for a few hours, ensuring they have water to stay hydrated though. Repeat the treatment daily until your turtle has recovered or up to no more than 10 treatments.
