My labrado retreiver chewed on my 7 year old russian tortoise's shell and there is a quarter size exposed area of shell. He is not bleeding and is walking and seems normal, but i need advice on care of the wound.

damaged shell

A vet will have to repair the shell. This is not a job you can do yourself.

Once the shell is breached, there will probably be infection that needs to be treated before the wound is covered.
