EMAIL FROM DR SING DATED JUN 23, 2013


Pl come to collect the urn and pay a balance of $60 as the total cost of cremation with ash  is $130.

Pl let me know more information as your terrapin of 8 years of age looked in excellent condition and was presented with great difficulty in breathing and cyanotic tongue and passed away soon after arrival.
.
1. How long has the terrapin not been eating? Was it soon after changing to the new shrimp brand 2 months ago?
2. When did those large swelling of the skin appear? They looked like edematous folds and if so, would be a result of liver, heart or kidney failure.
3. Pl bring along the shrimp food tub and the older one so that I can find out what food was fed and origin of source of production.
4. Is your terrapin housing  a large water tank with filter and pump?

 

Updates will be on this webpage:
