If you bought a turtle illegally can you take it to a vet?

I don't think they care about that. However, a lot of veterinary practices do not treat turtles, or any reptiles, for that matter. Usually it's just dogs and cats, and maybe birds. My vet would definitely not see a turtle.If you can find a vet who sees turtles, then I wouldn't worry about the fact that you got the turtle illegally. More often than not, I think, people buy their turtles illegally. I got mine from a Chinese woman on 96th Street and Broadway. She had a whole tank full of tiny baby hatchlings (red-eared sliders), and it is illegal to sell a red-eared slider that is under 3 inches in the state of New York.I don't think law enforcement really cares that much about people who buy illegal turtles. They care about the people who are selling illegal turtles. And veterinarians care about the health and well-being of animals, a lot more than they care about where you got them from.
