Abstract:

Two cases of tortoise presented to the outpatient department of Surgery & Radiology, Bombay Veterinary College, Parel, Mumbai with complaint of anorexia and vomition, lethargy, reluctance to walk and slightly reddish ocular mucous membranes since long time. The clinical approach included history, clinical examination, radiography, surgical management along with supportive medication. On radiographical examination, there was some radio opaque material in stomach. On surgical excision, there was rusted iron wire in one case and ear ornaments in another case. The celiotomy by plastro¬tomy for removal of foreign bodies in both tortoises proved to be a viable, very important and safe technique to the survival of chelonians. Both foreign bodies were successfully removed surgically. Celiotomy incision was closed in routine manner. Shell was sutured by using adhesive tape for next 10 day of post-operative period. Adhesive tape of shell was removed on 15th post operative day.
