    Shell Crack!!

    Thank you. We bought our house 2 years ago and are still in the process of updating the yard. She just digs under the planter. Here are come pictures of the enclosure. We put something over it since it rained a couple days ago. The lamp also doesn’t hang that low, when I open it it dropped.

    Shell Crack!!

    She has been digging under a planter that’s pretty solid, thats the only thing i can think of. She doesn’t have anything in her inclosure that can scratch her. Thank you! I’ll begin to put Neosporin on it.

    No, nothing in her enclosure that can scratch her shell. But this did spark a thought, she has been digging under a planter. Perhaps thats it? I’ll remove the planter just incase

    Lucy swallowed a screw!

    We’re not sure where she found it. We’ve cleaned and swept the yard to make sure there are no others. Tomorrow we have plans to use a magnet and go around the yard.

    PLEASE HELP! (Sulcatas with MBD)

    1/12/22 - AFTER VET VISIT UPDATE The vet did confirm today, euthanasia is definitely something she had thought about in the first visit but would like for Tiny (small tort) to finish the antibiotics and other prescription to see if there is a positive change. I know this is risky and I did...

    PLEASE HELP! (Sulcatas with MBD)

    I 100% agree with you. People buy tortoises because their cute but don’t take time to do the research beforehand and take time to think if they’ll be able to commit to providing them a good nutrition and home.

    PLEASE HELP! (Sulcatas with MBD)

    Its such a hard thing to think about. But you’re right, we don’t want the poor little thing to be in pain. We’ll be taking it back to the vet next week. I’ll speak to the vet and see what she recommends. If its in pain and its not resolvable then there might not be another choice :(
