Cracked Desert Tortoise Shell
(dana point, ca)
My 3 year old desert tortise got run over by a car. I washed him in distilled water, poured periode over him and then put aloe on the shell and wrapped him in gause changed him every two days. Day four poured betadine on shell and left gauze off. His appetite is off today and I am so worried. My vet is out of town until the 9th of Sept. This happened last Sunday it has been 4 days? The crack is on the top in the middle by his head and a little crushed shell on the side but no flesh came out. Is there anything else I can do?
