10/21/2022 Turtle was found floating in Anna Maria Sound off Holmes Beach. Turtle was lethargic and had head twitching and other movements associated with possible red tide toxicity or some other toxicity. Blood work was done and Bean was given subcutaneous fluids to start flushing out any toxins. Turtle will be dry-docked to prevent drowning until neurologic issues improve.
10/23/2022 Bean continues to receive subcutaneous fluids daily until neurologic symptoms resolve. He is now in a rehab. pool in very shallow water. He ate squid today!
10/29/2022 Bean is now on injectable antibiotics and anti-parasitics to further address neurologic issues.
11/05/2022 Bean is still lethargic and therefore is still being kept in very shallow water. Turtle is eating well though and defecating normally.
11/19/2022 Bean is eating well and is very active. The depth of his tank was rasied to half full. Because he's eating well, he was switched from an injectable antobiotic to an oral antibiotic.
