Hello,

My box turtle has an eye issue again. Usually after a few soakings it clears up but seems to be stubborn this time. I've been reading that Terramycin Antibiotic Ophthalmic Ointment can be used. I found it for Dogs, Cats, Cattle, Horses and Sheep on Amazon. Can that be used on my box turtle as well?

I've been using the ZooMed Vitamin A Eye Drops for 4 weeks now with little improvement.

Yes, but I think you need a prescription.
