Shell rot and cuts
I visited twice a vet clinic because of my sick young turtle named Momo. It had a respiratory infection and some shell rot. After a few weeks of treatment, the infection was cleared and the shell rot had improved. However, it has been over a month and I am still worried for it's shell.
It is still not used to getting on top of the basking area (it can reach it). So since I was on holidays I left it to get natural sunlight for an hour or two everyday (when it was not raining). There is one area in particular of it's shell I am worried for, it is bellow it's head next to it's left arm, there is a sort of crack that has been there for a while but it got bigger and now there is some very small wholes and it's whiter than the rest of the shell.
Also, A couple days ago, it's shell cut his back leg (Momo does not stay still and instead tries to climb out), I almost completely sure it is the shell because the shell has had been chipped off before I rescued the turtle and now that area is sharper. Since it moves a lot, I pretty sure the shell made that cut. Today this happened again but the cut had not healed so it worsened a little. I applied both of the times pressure for the bleeding and used a saline solution to clean the cut. Before today, the cut had started healing and seemed to be doing fine.
It's appetite has not changed much, neither has it's energy. It has been swimming better so I started rising the level of water a bit every week. I am writing because last time I was told by the vet that the white spots meant the shell was drying and that it was doing better. I am still concerned (mainly because of this cutting issue).
I am right at this very moment keeping it in a dry area, but I am not sure I will keep it there because it does cut itself when it is in water. I contacted my vet and I am waiting for their response. I thought I would still ask people here what they thought and how they would take care of Momo until the vet replies.
Thank you for your time and attention (I know this is a long thread, Im sorry and I didn't manage to figure out how to upload pictures).
