Ever wondered how you operate on a tortoise?
This is Amy, she is a 9 year old tortoise.
We performed surgery on her to remove her ovaries. She had a condition called follicular stasis, meaning that her ovaries were not releasing eggs, resulting in peronitis (inflammation within her enclosed body cavity).
