Kemp’s Ridley Turtle “Blu” Recovering Well

In July, the South Carolina Aquarium brought a Kemp’s ridley turtle to our clinic because it had been hooked by a fisherman and swallowed the hook.  Dr. Biascoechea surgically removed the hook and the turtle was returned to the Turtle Hospital at the Aquarium for continued care.  We recently received the good news that “Blu” is recovering well and will be ready to return to the ocean in about 3 weeks.  We are proud to serve the South Carolina Aquarium and to be able to help our ocean’s wildlife stay wild!
