Issue: Debilitated
Current Condition: New patient

Seamore is a juvenile green sea turtle patient that was found in Juno Beach with a heavy epibiota load on its carapace and soft tissue. The turtle is underweight, lethargic, and in poor health overall due to being debilitated. Seamore alsohas wounds on its carapace, most likely from the heavy epibiota load, that will be treated topically. The turtle was put into freshwater to remove the barnacles and other epibiota that covered its body. We will monitor Seamore’s bloodwork closely as we treat with antibiotics.
