 Welcome  to  IAH!
 
 Please  be  more  elaborate  on  your  query.  Has  your  RES  been  accidentallty/deliberately  been  enjected  with  dexona?
 
 Are  you  trying  to  treat  your  RES  for  something  and  want  to  know  if  there  maybe  any  side  effects  if  you  try  Dexona  on  him/her?

 Like  Nitin  says,  you  should  post  in  some  detail  about  your  problem.  It  will  help  us  help  you.  
 
 Dexona  is  a  steroid  and  there  are  members  here  who  can  give  you  some  information  on  it.
 
 Personally  I  would  not  be  using  it.

 Hyper  tension,  fatigue,  weakness,  delayed  wound  healing,  fragile  skin  are  the  adverse  effects  of  Dexona.

 Hi  Jessica,
 Do  check  this  link  and  it  could  help.
 http://indianaquariumhobbyist.com/community/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=6954&start=0&postdays=0&postorder=asc&highlight=res
 
 i  agree  with  deepesh,  pls  do  not  try  the  steroid  on  the  turtle.
 
 There  are  very  few  known  cures  for  RES  so  you  need  to  be  careful  with  what  you  do.
 
 Rgds

 Well..  its  too  late  now.  My  baby  turtle  passed  away  yesterday  Sad
 For  the  past  week,  it  was  doin  a  lot  of  gasping  n  didnt  go  into  the  water.  Its  very  tiny.  I  read  that  could  happen  if  the  water  gets  too  cold  for  it.  So  I  removed  it  n  kept  it  under  a  basking  lamp  n  near  a  water  area.  Gave  it  warm  salt  water  bath  for  about  half  n  hour  to  one  hour  daily.  It  seemed  to  get  better  but  still  wudnt  eat  so  i  took  it  to  a  vet.  She  suggested  sum  meds  for  it  n  gave  it  an  injection  which  had  Dexona.  The  turtle  just  tried  to  run  off  once  it  was  injected,  then  tucked  itself  in  its  shell  n  didnt  move.  I  asked  her  n  she  said  that  it  must  be  in  a  lot  of  pain  n  to  give  it  sumtime.  It  never  moved  after  that.............

 Thanks  for  all  your  help  guys
 Also,  I've  read  similar  incidents  happening  to  other  people  where  they've  lost  their  RES.  Is  there  anyway  we  could  put  up  an  alert  about  care/precaution  to  be  taken  while  giving  injections  and  anti  biotic  medicines  to  baby  RES??  Its  so  easy  to  overdose  the  lil  ones...

 Hi  Jessica,
 
 Sorry  for  the  loss  of  you  pet.
 
 It  is  important  to  understand  that  firstly  the  RES  is  not  an  Indian  Species.  So  not  mush  research  has  been  done  and  as  far  as  the  VET  goes  their  knowledge
 about  there  species  could  be  limited  and  the  treatment  on  your  turtle  could  have  been  a  trial  and  error  kind  of  a  situation.
 
 There  is  a  very  easy  solution  to  this  problem  ie.
 
 Before  buying  EXOTIC  pet  just  because  they  look  cute  or  an  LFS  sold  it  to  you  at  a  very  good  rate  It  is  IMPORTANT  TO  STUDY  about  the  animal  that  you  wish  to  keep  at  home.
 The  internet  is  surely  the  best  place  to  do  that.

 HI  Jessica,
 
 Sorry  in  your  loss.  I  will  agree  with  Mayur  on  the  Vets  part.  I  personaly  checked  with  few  doc's  and  all  they  could  do  direct  me  to  cupa.
 
 You  would  have  had  a  better  chance  in  saving  this  guy  with  the  advice  from  the  members  out  here  than  the  vets.
 
 Regards,
 Surya.

 What  can  I  say...
 
 There  is  a  tendency  among  many  doctors  to  use  steroids  as  a  magic  shot.  Vets  are  no  exceptions.  Since  one  of  the  effects  of  steroids  is  to  suppress  inflammation  it  masks  the  signs  of  the  disease  making  it  appear  that  the  disease  is  cured.
 
 The  double  whammy  is  that  once  the  steroid  suppresses  the  inflammation  the  disease  causing  germ  gets  a  free  hand  in  spreading  more  havoc.
 
 Like  Mayur  says  we  have  to  take  things  in  our  own  hands  if  there  are  none  other  more  capable.  That  is  the  sorry  scene  for  the  most  part  nowadays.  Hopefully  it  will  turn  out  to  be  better.  Indian  vets  can  be  great  veterans  when  it  comes  to  livestock  (personal  interaction  with  some  great  ones)  but  the  pet  scene  lags  far  behind  for  now.
