Spring has sprung, and May flew by like a flash! With all this incredible weather we’ve been having, it’s been hard to catch our breath between all the work and play. Let’s recap some of the awesome stuff that happened in May! Never a dull day at Dewdney.

Hooray for Willow!

Little Willow is doing so so well, we just had to share another update with you guys. Her guardians report that training is going very well, her hair is growing in nicely, and she is still gaining weight!
Willow was awarded the Courage Award from the BCSPCA!

Nancy’s Dentist Adventure

Do turtles get toothaches? Not like you would expect! All turtles and tortoises grow beaks, and they do need their beaks trimmed! Their beaks normally get worn down in the wild on roughage. The roughage they get in captivity often isn’t tough enough to wear it down.

Nancy here is a 50 year old Box Turtle! Some Box Turtles may live to be over 100!

Did you know that Dewdney Animal Hospital has been a licensed rescue facility for illegal exotic animals since 2010? These special animals have very unique requirements, and need special enclosures. Check out this video to see how we are building homes for these wonderful critters.
