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).
Here are some photos of her from anaesthetising her, the surgery and recovering from anaesthetic.
Amy is now doing well thanks to surgery performed by Jason and his team.
We are currently looking to recruit an weekend cleaner and a part time vet
Here at Wood Veterinary Group we have a dedicated team of 20 Veterinary Nurses (10 Full time, 8 Part Time and 2 Night Nurses)
This adorable pair of badger cubs called Roly and Poly were brought in by Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue to see one of our vets Charlotte
