Well herps are pretty tough, perhaps she put some antibiotic cream on it and it healed up on its own, you can find many battle scars on turtles and other reptiles in the wild that had no one to take them to the vet. Crocs with 1/2 jaws, 3 legs, little tail, sea turtles missing arms, legs, and tails from sharks and boats, sea manetitees can be recognized by there scars as very few have none.
Not saying that herps don't need to go to the vet, but this wasn't her turtle maybe she didn't have money for a vet, and maybe no vet is around.
and if it was a wild turtle there may be no money to take it to the vet anyway and laws limiting what vets do for wild animals that aren't endangered are limited when no one is paying for it.
