As an animal lover i found an injured tortoise on the road and brought him home. His leg has a cut which is quite deep but not bleeding. Unfortunately the sliced piece of meat on his leg, just before his claws and away from his shell, mid way i would say, has an upward turn and he cannot put his leg back into his shell.
What can i put it on to sooth his pain and what can i use to bind the piece back down until it heals .
Do not suggest a vet please, this is rural Greece and they are far and few between, if anything can be done , give me instructions , i will do it myself.
Sorry if its too much bother and hope you can help, my e mail is firstname.lastname@example.org and my name is Ray...best wishes and many thanks.
