Our dog bit our turtle! There is a large puncture wound and 2 small ones. There was bleeding. Anything I can do to stabilize for the night until we get to the vet in the morning? She is breathing very heavy.

Keep the turtle dry docked (clean, warm, safe area) and dark as possible to limit stress. Clean the area with diluted Betadine if you have it. good luck!

I put her in a big Tupperware for now. Is that okay until morning?

As long as she is able to rest and stay warm.
