    Tortoise deworming question

    Oh that's awful. The parasite is "ova" or "ophidascaris". It says "few (3-10)".

    By 3 times every 10 days I meant every 10 days, I would give her the pancuar. I did that 3 times

    Tortoise deworming question

    Okay thanks I forget what type of worms it was. I'm going to call the vet when they open and ask. I am by far no vet but I don't think that she had a lot of worms. I Google it and it said that the symptoms were not eating. She always eats. Pancuar was used 3 times every 10 days in a small tube

    Tortoise deworming question

    Do you think that the treatement was pointless since I didn't change the substrate? Is there a possibility that she hasn't gotten reinfected?

    Tortoise deworming question

    Thanks for responding. The meds are all done. I didn't keep her on paper towels. Was I supposed to? The vet said to just clean out the bowls and clean her poop out immediately.

    Hey everyone. So I finished the deworming treatement for my tortoise recently. However the vet called and said that we should wait another month before getting another fecal test from my tortoise. When i was doing the treatment I was washing out her bowls daily to prevent reinfection. I stopped...

    Question about outside temps

    Hi guys! Sorry that I post a lot but I have a lot of questions and I'd rather be better safe than sorry. So today it is 85f where I am and I brought my tortoise outside. I measured the substrate temp with a temp gun. In the shade it is 89-93f and in the sun it is 107-122f. Is this okay? I check...

    Update guys! My vet said that we can either put some powder or liquid on her food to help kill the parasites. I chose liquid. I'm getting it soon!

    Tortoise has roundworms!

    I brought in my annual tortoise fecal sample yesterday and today I got the news that my tortoise has ascaris/roundworms. The vet said that they will contact a specialist to talk to us. Is there anything I can do in the meantime? I think I take good care of her. I've read all the caresheets...

    Prop 65 Warning On Enclosure Materials

    Hi everyone. About 2 weeks ago I finished attaching a lit to my Tortoise's enclosure. Today I just noticed that the screen I used to cover it, has a warning that says Prop 65 and it talks about cancer and birth defects. However, it also specifically says "safe to use for animal enclosures". Is...

    Could harmful germs from tortoises and bearded dragons spread to each other?

    This is kind of a complicated question but do germs from tortoises and bearded dragons spread dangerously? They are housed separately but I still wonder if some stuff is dangerous. For example if I touch my tortoise and then touch my bearded dragons greens, which he then eats, is that dangerous...

    Tortoise acting very lethargic

    Thank you so much for responding! I cant post pics right now but its a 4x8 enclosure and the bedding is cypress mulch and coconut fiber. She is a Hermann Tortoise. I mean that all day she is burrowed under the basking light which I think is unusual since the temperatures are correct. Usually...

She spent the whole day burrowed under the basking light and has been doing it everyday since. I have increased the 100 watt...
