    Yellow Spots on Neck

    Hello all, I know a few of you already know, but I wanted to share of Luna's outcome on this thread in case new people are reading.

    Okay, thank you. I'm tossing all my stuff today. Luna was all over the yard. How long do you think the yard will be contaminated? How long should I wait?

    Health Concerns

    Thank you all for your condolences. I want to get another tortoise, and my vet put me on the list to get the next rescue tortoise. I was wondering what are your professional opinions on whether I should start new with all my supplies or would bleaching everything be suffice? Also is my yard...

    I am saddened to share that Luna passed away in her sleep last night. The vet started her on antibiotics again, and she got her first dose just yesterday morning. I wanted to do all I could to try and treat this, but you guys were right there was no hope. After the first two courses of...

Her lower jaw quivers/shakes, and it appears as though she cannot actually bite down on anything. Before she was able to take bites from a big...

    She was on antibiotics for almost two weeks. Her dose just ended. I would have to say during her course of anabiotic she was doing very bad. She was not eating and she was sleeping all day. She lost 2 g over the course of 10 days. Although she has been off of the antibiotics for two days now and...

    Yellow Spots on Neck

    Interesting! I just looked it up. There are a ton of animals for sale on that site! So I just want to clarify with you guys that all yellow spots are the same bacteria, and it is not treatable. There is no possible way that the yellow spots could be just a sign of infections of any kind? So...

    Yellow Spots on Neck

    I took her to the vet, who said she showed signs of a respiratory infection. She was prescribed antibiotics to be injected every other day for two weeks. It’s been about a week and she has been getting worse not better. Her spots are gone but she is not active like she used to be, and she hardly...

    Yellow Spots on Neck

    So, I got her as a gift from a friend, who said that she had a friend who needed to relocate this Tortoise. We contacted the original person, and the only info they could give us is that she came from a breeder in Miami, Florida. I know that's not great info, but I learned that I am her third...

    yellow bumps and biopsies, we need your help.

    I have an appointment today with Arizona Exotic Animal Hospital. I have never been there, and do not know anything about the veterinarian. My appointment is at 4:30pm Arizona time. I do not mind sending in a sample or asking the vet to do a biopsy. What exactly would you like me to do?

    Yellow Spots on Neck

    I don't mind being awkward if it helps my little one. I'll try to find out! Also, do you know whether or not I should be allowing her to walk around the house? I typically allow her to walk around outside of her enclosure to get exercise. She is always supervised, but I allow her to walk...

    Yellow Spots on Neck

    Thank you for the information. I have been sifting through all the discussions about this now that I know! Do you know if it's contagious to other animals like cats? I typically allow her to walk around outside of her enclosure to get exercise. She is always supervised, but I allow her to walk...
