You are welcome
by: Shelly

You are most welcome. It would help others if you could tell what the vet did for your pet.

For example, was the missing piece replaced? Was there anything else you think someone in the position you were in should know?

Shell repair
by: Shelly

A vet has to make the repairs to the shell. Sometimes you can use a saved piece. Sometimes not.

Keep it slow and steady.

Damaged tortoise shell
by: Shelly

No, they don't grow a new shell. A shell is part of the skeleton. The shell can be repaired. If the shell damage is serious, the vet can deal with that.

The real damage is probably to the inside of your pet. You need to be sure that wound is completely clean. Cleaning a wound inside a tortoise is a job best done by a professional.

Keep it slow and steady.
