Running Into an Old Patient

Dr. Shannon Moore of Hocking Hills Animal Clinic in Logan, Ohio, tells how she ran into a former patient while hiking in the woods. Since she’s a veterinarian, there wasn’t much conversation, but she did stop to examine how her work was holding up, and take a couple pictures.

Several years ago, a client brought me a box turtle that had been hit by a car. I used fiberglass to repair his broken shell and then released him in my woods. Recently, while walking on my hillside, I spotted an odd pattern in the leaves. To my amazement, there was my old patient with the fiberglass still on… years later! Sometimes, being a vet is the best thing there is.

I can imagine that the turtle has spent his time explaining to his buddies that mesh-and-Bondo is a turtle’s best friend. And the vet, too, of course. -via Boing Boing
