There is really no need for the vet as the beak should heal on its own keep an eye out to make sure your shelf friend doesn’t have any trouble eating or isn’t eating as that can cause some issues. There is really nothing the vet can do but tell you what to be aware of or trim it’s beak(For Money of Course) if needed. You can trim your own tortoises beak as there’re many tutorials on how. Make sure the damage doesn’t spread as well.
Sorry that comment was meant for me not you but you managed to sneak your comment above before I hit postBy the way I don’t suggest trying to trim your tortoises beak on your own when it is damaged.I have also been a owner for almost 7yrs now so you may call me experienced thou I bet there are way more experienced owners on here to wait for.
No problem as actually it was the other way around you posted before me and I read your reply and just wanted to make sure to say there are probably way more experienced owners than me to wait for it was really me agreeing with you.Sorry that comment was meant for me not you but you managed to sneak your comment above before I hit post
This tortoise has a severely overgrown beak. The overgrowth makes the beak prone to breakage which has now happened. When the overgrowth is severe enough to result in a fracture as like that in your tortoise, it is best treated by a vet who is experienced with treating the conditions shown in your photo. Is there a good exotics vet in your area? If so, I recommend taking the tortoise there. If not, is there a vet school with an exotics department in your area? That would be the next choice.
