The Turtle Hospital. Rescue, Rehab, Release.


A juvenile Green Sea Turtle was found floating near the Crystal River Power Plant. The small turtle has a number of fibropapilloma tumors on the flippers and neck.


Logan is scheduled for surgery to have an endoscope inspection (to ensure no internal tumors are present) and to remove the external tumors.Update Jan 22, 2009

Dr Kristen from Marathon Veterinarian Hospital performed an endoscope procedure to determine if there are any internal fibropapilloma tumors. Unfortunately, Logan’s intestines were full of gas, making the internal inspection unsuccessful. A subsequent surgery will be scheduled, after treatment for the impaction.
