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!
