dog chewed off tortoise tail and hind leg
Posted: 28/02/2016 by vlgt

Wild Greek tortoise. Discovered today. Washed wounds and applied disinfectant. Legs stopped bleeding, tail wound deep, and can see internal cavity. Is it likely to survive, and any advice appreciated. Currently in dark, in crate, with water and fresh grass and lettuce. Still breathing, but not moving much. Victoria

'Common sense' should tell you that urgent vet treatment is needed.


Where is this ?
