Do you guys keep some sort of tortoise first aid kit? If so... What's in there? E.g. cream, or some sort of thing to help wounds stay clean. I would like to hear from you and get some ideas to maybe make my own. Thank you :)

I like to use the bandages that stick to themselves, so I have a couple rolls of that (it's elasticized), gauze, Neosporin, tweezers, eye dropper, Betadine, Chlorhexidine, single edge razor blade, syringes with and without needles, Baytril, scissors, ...that's all I can remember off the top of my head, and I'm too lazy to go look.

Yvonne has many torts she rescues. The chances of her using these things regularly are high.

If you have only the one tort save your money. Buy the drugs when you need them, otherwise they will be out of date when you do need them.
