A wild, male common snapping turtle was given to the Turtle Rescue Team at North Carolina State University with injuries consistent with vehicular trauma. Around once a week, regional antibiotic limb perfusions were performed to treat osteomyelitis. The patient's ambulation and mentation increased quickly after seven consecutive regional antibiotic limb perfusions, and there was no sign of osteomyelitis on repeat radiographs. This case study reveals the possibility of regional antibiotic perfusion as an adjunctive therapy for osteomyelitis in chelonians.
