Zoe Turtle has been at the vet school for many months being treated for a wound that turned out to be cancer. He’s making his way back to us to live out the rest of his life here as surgery and radiation treatments are now finished. The tumor could not be removed completely, but Zoe seems to be doing okay and we will keep him here until his quality of life diminishes.
I love that the way to keep turtles still is by balancing them on a yogurt cup, or other container where their feet won’t touch it or the ground. (This is how they got MRIs and CT Scans on him).
Not sure of his exact return date, but it will be soon. He’ll be behind-the-scenes and used for education programs.
