Turtle Trauma Centre

Did you know that now all 8 Ontario turtle species are at risk? In collaboration with the Turtle Conservation Centre in Peterborough Ontario, we are one of a few Ontario veterinary hospitals trained to work as first line responders to take in and provide emergency care for wild turtles found to be injured on our Ontario highways and elsewhere.  It is our job to stabilize and ready them for transport to the Turtle Conservation Centre where they will receive ongoing medical care and any necessary surgery and rehabilitation with the ultimate goal to be released back to nature. To find out more about this conservation effort, please visit the Turtle Conservation Centre website.
