Tortoise Power!

Dr. Lindsay Porter works in our LA emergency room, treating dogs and cats who need immediate assistance, but she also has a passion for exotics! Dr. Porter owns three Red-Footed Tortoises. These tortoises can live more than 50 years and are noted for their curious personalities. The Porter tortoises came in for a wellness check with Dr. Olivia Petritz which included an exam and x-rays. X-ray imaging is a great diagnostic tool that typically does not involve sedation or much restraint. After their checkup, the three friends enjoyed a salad for lunch and hung out until it was time to go home.

If you ever have any questions about the care of your pet, be sure to call your primary veterinarian.
