A Big Surgery for Moe!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThanks to Dr. Jackie of Marathon Veterinary Hospital for helping one of juvenile Greens, ‘Moe’, by removing a large batch of his FP tumors! Moe’s previous surgeries include an endoscopy and a removal of a 1.4 lb. tumor from his front flipper by Dr. Gerri. This time, Moe had all of the tumors removed from his rear half, a tumor load of 1.3 lbs.!

Moe will need one more surgery in 2 weeks to become tumor free. Already, Moe looks much more comfortable and is finally able to use his rear flippers to swim! Check the Current Patients tab above for the current status of our other turtles.
