Tony the Sulcata
This tortoise came in from someone that got him from a cruelty case. He was fed dog food, approximately seven years. This is what can go horribly wrong when proper care is not given to a tortoise. The poor guy was sick with respiratory when he came in. He also needed to have his shell filed to stop the serrated points from digging into his legs as he walked.
Update: Tony was adopted and went to a great home, however his poor prior care left his kidneys in such bad shape he died from apparent kidney failure about a year later. At least he had that time of living as he should.
