I brought my babies (3 & 4y/o's) inside the other day for their periodic tub-soaking and weigh-in. This is the first time I've noticed anything unusual with their feces, but there were tiny little thread-like worms present in the tub water where some had pooped. My next step is to collect some specimens and visit the vet, naturally, but I am curious about a few things:

1) How in the world do they give medications to turtles? Do you medicate their food, or do they get the meds in their mouths/stomachs????

2) How can I keep their habitat "cleaner" and safer for them? Do I need to "scoop poop" when I notice it? Is the size of the habitat an issue?

Thanks!
