龜全身感染. Bacterial infection in a turtle (Dr. John Choi –All Creatures Vet Centre/ Tai Po Vet Clinic).

此龜名字叫“小黑”。主人說小黑全身感染己超過三個月,主人上載者加以藥物治療,包括口服避孕藥的抗生素,及龜精靈浸身,不但沒有好轉反致更加嚴重,全身長有很多大膿瘡。不能爬行。冇胃口。
醫生檢查後建議用針藥注射治療而在家中定時搽藥。
十天後“小黑”所患的症狀消除。可行路。胃口正常,主人很開心。
最後醫生建議病向淺中醫。不要拖到最嚴重時才找醫生幫助,這樣的治療不是每次都可以克服。

This“Siu Kwai”presented with a generalised bacterial infection. The condition had occurred for over 3 months, as well as poor appetite and reduced mobility. The owner previously used medicine (oral and soaking), which only prolonged early clinical diagnosis and proper treatment.
On exam, prominent localised skin abscessation was evident. Following culture and sensitivity, a course of injections and topical medicine was instigated. After 10 days, the abscesses resided and appetite was returned to normal.
This was a fortunate case.

Surgical management of a wound in a red-earred slider: by Dr. John Choi (All Creatures Veterinary Centre / Tai Po Veterinary Clinic).
手術處理嚴重膿腫(龜):蔡衛衡獸醫的個案(港島寵物。珍禽醫療中心/大埔獸醫診所)。

8月16日2012年龜主人帶一隻龜(無名)求診,主人稱此龜頸腫巳2個多月,冇胃口及不願走動。經檢查後醫生判斷頸部是感染細菌後不作正當處理而改變為極嚴重的膿腫,及頸膊前手腫脹後膿腫變質聚積為巨大粒狀硬塊,壓住氣管令龜的呼吸困難,絕對有生命危險如圖下:

On the 16th August 2012, an owner of a 7 year old, female, red-earred slider (no name); presented to us after more than 2 months with a non-healing open wound of the ventral neck. This had lead to advanced swelling of the neck and shoulders, reducing appetite and mobility, and causing difficult breathing. It was life-threatening condition. It was diagnosed with bacterial infection secondary to an inciting wound.





[ 硬塊有4cm大. The removed caseous material was approx. 4cm diameter. ]
經醫生手術處理完的膿腫及經藥物治療後2星期內一路慢慢康復肯食嘢,呼吸暢順,精神回後正常,經常走動,龜主人亦很開心。
After surgery and medicine, the area healed within 2 weeks with gradual steady improvement with appetite, breathing, brightness, mobility etc. The owner was very satisfied with the outcome.





主人1個月後帶龜覆診,以下是康復後的圖照。
請留意這只龜也可以展開笑容!

1 month later, the owner returned for a recheck photo. If you look closely, the terrapin is smiling!

I was presented with a rectal and penile prolapsed 24 hours after initial presentation of signs.
It was measured approximately 3 inches in total length which was relatively long compared to a patient of 4 inches!



Due to trauma, there were erosive wounds on the ventral side with bleeding. There were extensive areas of dark discolouration due to constriction necrosis at the proximal portion of the gut, where the cloacal aperture was surrounding it.
After discussion with the owners, it was decided to proceed with a salvage procedure.
Under anaesthesia, portions of non-viable gut were removed. The prolapsed organs were replaced and a pulse-string suture was made around the cloacal opening.



Together with medicine, it made an uneventful recovery. A very happy terrapin at sutures out!
Even 1 month post surgery, it was eating well and very bright indeed.

腸及生殖器宮脫出
此個案是在24小時內帶到我們中心診斷。



垂脫出來的內臟有3吋長,而此龜的身長則只有4吋長,實屬非常嚴重。



脫出來的內臟己變深色(變壞) 及潰瘍出血, 和主人商議後決定立刻做急救手術,
麻醉後將壞的組織切除及內臟復位再加針固定。



最後配給康復內臟的藥物之後完全康服,在拆線時非常生猛,
再過一個月後,仍然好胃口及狀態生猛。

Follicular Stasis (卵子積蓄)在雀鳥、兩棲及爬蟲動物身上都可以發生,為香港春天十分非見的疾病之一。在蜥蝪、守宮、兩棲類等無甲殼動物身上,飼主會發現動物食量大大減少但體重身段沒有改變,獸醫須以超聲波確診,大多個案以手術治療。

以下為一則豹紋守宮的個案:



成年雌性守宮近來食慾下降,超聲波確診卵子積蓄。



鎮定後插喉作氣體麻醉



以氣體麻醉動物較為安全而且康復較快



麻醉後必須為動物作人工呼吸



準備好手術位置



必須小心腹腔下靜脈,意外切斷可引致大量流血



可見卵子完全阻塞著腹腔以致動物難以進食



開始切除左右兩邊卵巢









完成切除後縫合

Turtle Eye Infection

This turtle was rescued from a park six months ago by the Hong Kong Society of Herpetology Foundation. Upon rescue it was noted that both eyes of the terrapin were swollen and shut. Treatment was commenced using eye ointment and every other day antibiotics injection. After one month the left eye swelling reduced but the right eye appeared worst.
The terrapin was presented to Happy Pets one week ago for eye examination. Physical examination reveals the terrapin to be in a good condition with strong shell. The left eye appear normal but the right eye was very swollen with a thick dense yellowish plug covering it (photo 1). At this point we were unable to assess the integrity of the eyeball.

Few drops of local anesthesia were applied to the right eye. Three minutes later the fibrin plug covering the eye was gently removed with small forceps and saline flushes. The eye ball appeared intact underneath although the eye lid was still swollen obscuring proper visualization.
The terrapin was sent home with topical antibiotic eye ointment to be applied twice daily for a week.
The terrapin was seen again after one week of treatment and right eye had healed fully. (photo 2).
