    carrot soaks

    Hi, the carrot soaks are done when the babies are not eating/lethargic in order to provide nutrients and help them recover. The nutrients go in by way of drinking the water and thru the bottom. I filled the bin with very warm water and added about two tablespoons of carrot baby food. The soak...

    It's painfully obvious to me now,

    BTW, you don’t need to use baby food at all if your tort is eating ... Fruit baby food is not good because of the load of sugar in them ...

    It's painfully obvious to me now,

    Oh well, then is just a matter of waiting, I am in the same predicament with my second sulcata ... hoping for a growth spur or a turn for the worst ...

    It's painfully obvious to me now,

    Hi again, if your tort is not eating at all you still should give the carrot baby food soak daily, even twice a day, still having food and water available in the enclosure. When he starts eating his regular foods, then you can stop the carrots in the soaks. I haven’t heard of carrot not being...

    You should do it in every soak until he starts eating properly again. The nutrients go into his system by way of drinking the soak and thru the cloaca.

    tortoise attacked by dog,, possible paralysis??

    Hi, sos orry for your loss, it is very difficult to bring them back most of the time, happened to us ... You have to get your baby inside or the same thing will happen again. Read all the threads and soak him daily, remember to keep your temps and you have to work on his diet!!! Best of luck!!!

    Advice needed. I feel like a failure.

    Hi, you need to soak your tort twice a day in warm water adding carrot baby food and some pedialyte. This will keep him nourished while he is not eating properly. If you don’t have sunlight do it inside the tank in a plastic container under the light, water should be kept warm at all times...
