An unfortunate incident with a dog

by Steve Tasker BVSc MRCVS

Lumpy Bumpy recently came in to see us after the family dog gained access to her enclosure. Unfortunately the dog thought she was a toy and proceeded to have a little chew, not realising she was a tortoise.

Lump Bumpy had to be anaesthetised to have her wounds cleaned and has had to have frequent bandage changes to ensure they stayed clean whilst they healed. She is now all signed off, but will always have the scars from her unfortunate encounter.
