The Turtle Hospital would like to sincerely thank The Bouchard’s for their generous donation of surgical equipment. Turtle Hospital volunteer veterinarian Dr. Doug Mader has had a 30 degree rigid endoscope on his “wish list” for a very long time. This expensive piece of equipment would allow Dr. Mader to see internal tumors more clearly. In the fight against Fibropapillomatosis, an internal examination is the first step for every patient admitted with the virus. Internal tumors, which grow on the vital organs, are currently untreatable. Luckily, it’s estimated that less than 10% of patients admitted with the virus have them internal.
Thank you Bouchard Family!
