Okay, tommy was acting really weird. he was running full speed across his enclosure. when i picked him up his tail had bubbles coming out. I put him in a soak and he pooped a littlebut then wanted out. I put him in his water dish and he is sitting in there the last time i saw him. He had another poo coming out. Any help?!?! I am really overwelmed right now because my cat knocked over the turtle food so I need to clean that up.


I put him in another soak now.

If you put him into something BIG...like the bath tub (clean of course) with warm water and leave him there, the exercise (running around the tub, trying to escape) plus the warm water usually helps to get "things" moving along. Don't be too quick to take him out. Too bad if he doesn't like it...its good for him.

I agree. I just had this problem also. I ended up getting some mineral oil. Sprinkled some on her mazuri and it loosened things up.
