Reason for Stranding
Stranded in high tide line at City Access #8.
March 2020- Currently receiving Ceftazidime and Amikacin (antibiotics), Vitamin B to promotes appetite/energy, Iron dextran once weekly due to slight anemia, Vitamin K to help with some blood clotting issues, and fluids for hydration. Neptune has had an intermittent appetite since arriving at our hospital, but is now eating shrimp well every day! We offer Neptune live prey (blue crabs) a few times a week to try to encourage natural predation behavior.
Sand in mouth and nose, minor plastron abrasions, and exposed bone on carapace.
Ways to help Neptune's Recovery
One of the three primary missions at Sea Turtle, Inc. is rehabilitation. We work hard to rescue and return every sea turtle back to the wild. Proceeds from this adoption will go directly to purchase needed medical supplies, veterinary exams, x-rays, food and general care for our rehab turtles.
