Unhappy help! my dog bit my turtle!

During the summer,
we put my turtle in our backyard in a small pond that we made. We were getting ready to leave the house and we saw my dog hold my turtle, Shirlee ( hints the username) in his mouth. The front of her shell is now chipped. We got here some medicine: Repto-min soft gel but she doesn't seem to eat it or get better... What do I do?

if the shell is just chip and she did not bleed any and she isnt crushed any any shape way or form she should be fine. if she has bled any i would take her to the vet immediatley.

id bring her inside and setupa tank where she has a routine "life" feeding lighting basking. get a light that gives out uvb's i use the reptasun 10.0 which is great. make sure her food has d3 which is a form of calcium. make sure she has a proper basking area as well
