Hi,

just noticed my families tortoise leg does not seem to work. today is the first time my mum has seen the bad leg. i go to uni so havent been here so dont know if anything happened between now and the last time ive seen him. my mum doesnt either but something must have when we werent around.
normally id go to the vets but because of the situation going on around the world my vet has been closed.

he can move the leg but not all of it only up to the joint ( leg stays bent) and tends to drag it around when he walks

Sounds like it may be broken. Most vets are still seeing emergency patients. I think an X-ray is called for.
