CYSTOSCOPIC GUIDED REMOVAL OF ECTOPIC EGGS FROM THE URINARY BLADDER OF THE FLORIDA COOTER TURTLE (PSEUDEMYS FLORIDANA FLORIDANA)

JOURNAL OF ZOO AND WILDLIFE MEDICINE, 41(3), 503–509.

By: L. Minter n, M. Wood n, T. Hill* & G. Lewbart n

author keywords: Ectopic eggs; endoscope; cystoscopy; Florida cooter turtle; Pseudemys floridana floridana; urinary bladder
MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Wild; Cystoscopy / veterinary; Female; Ovum / physiology; Oxytocics / adverse effects; Oxytocics / therapeutic use; Oxytocin / adverse effects; Oxytocin / therapeutic use; Turtles; Urinary Bladder / pathology
TL;DR: One of the three turtles died within several days of the procedure, and necropsy revealed granulomatous bacterial cystitis, and it is hypothesized that these complications were likely due to the length of time between induction with oxytocin and the identification and removal of the ectopic egg.
