    I noticed a little puffiness a couple/few days ago. He got a partial beak trim when I got him a few months ago, he will get another when he goes to the vet. He eats mainly Romaine, and also some Spring Mix usually without the spinach and kale. Organic when it is available. Calcium sprinkled...

    Puffy Russian, no vet available right now, how urgent?

    He gets a soak every other day for the past several weeks. He has a small (temporary) tank, and it was definitely dusty the other day. (and yes, it is glass; we tried him in a large habitat and all he did was pace frantically as he is used to looking at everything going on in the room; he is a...

    Thank you. Yes, she is sure, as well as I. She says she uses it a lot in Snapping Turtles as she does wildlife rehab work. She now knows of the problem and is mortified; she is a wonderful vet and I should have realized myself, or gone to a more specialized vet, but she is very kind and...

    (EMERGENCY!!!) Ivermectin Toxicity now!

    Yes! I have another vet appointment tomorrow morning so he can hopefully give supportive care. I have charcoal for birds but don't want to give it as I don't know how. I am giving soaks. Hopefully he will get fluids administered tomorrow if he can make it that long. Thank You!

    He is about the same, hasn't been unconscious as far as I know. Still pooping and eating a little. Most of the studies were a long time ago and were injected. My tortoise took it orally.

    (EMERGENCY!!!) Ivermectin Toxicity now!

    I believe it was round worms. The tort always has some kind of worms/fluke/etc on last three visits. Only had him since about September.

    Had quite the appetite last night. Haven't tried to wake him yet this morning. Fingers crossed! The vet is out with Covid. Will contact her when I can. Not specialist. Does wildlife though.

    (EMERGENCY!!!) Ivermectin Toxicity now!

    I keep looking but everything I find is pretty old and nothing particular to Russian Tortoises. Fluids and charcoal but the current vet didn't mention or offer any support for the tort, except soaks.
