Positive thoughts needed for this tortoise, who is currently in surgery having a portion of her bowel resected after a pet store allowed her to suffer for upwards of a week with a severe prolapse that became necrotic. She is a ~6" red footed tortoise and thus still basically a baby. We want to give her a bright future so we have an excellent local exotics vet working on her today, but anesthesia and surgery on this kind of patient is difficult.

send all the good tortie thoughts to this poor shell friend! Hang in there! We’re pulling for you! We hope you get better soon so you can grow big and strong and rule the world!! <3
