Hello I’m just looking for some advice for some injuries my Hermann tortoise (mi-shell) sustained from a dog getting into our garden and attacking her, luckily we we’re quick on the case so she doesn’t look like she’s been too affected, she was tucked into her shell after the incident for about half an hour but after coming to she’s been eating fine, I bathed her in water and treating the wounds daily with antiseptic, I’ve read online that wounds like this will heal but is there anymore I could do or any advice anyone could offer me to make sure Mi-shell makes a full recovery, thank you in advance image.jpg

Hey, sorry this happened! Of course you will now dog-proof your tortoise space! Hope she makes a full recovery.

Sounds like its covered. She doesn't look to have any real concerns and sounds like she got over the trauma.
Put a cover over the enclosure if you can or a tall fence around it.
Sorry this happened and very glad you were able to stop it quick.
