Reason for Stranding
Stranded just north of jetties at Isla Blanca covered in algae and barnacles.
March 2020- Currently receiving Ceftazidime (antibiotic), Vitamin B to promote appetite/energy, and fluids for hydration. Daybreak has a few wounds on the carapace (upper shell) that we are treating with cold laser therapy and topical medications. Daybreak has not been eating well so we are monitoring his/her appetite closely and will start tube feeding if necessary.
Minor plastron and major carapace abrasions, no other major wounds.
Ways to help Daybreak'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.
