My tortoise who is a out 3 lbs got into this fertilizer! It somehow floated from a plant that is not in my tortoise area from the rain into my tortoise area. I'm not sure how much he ate. I don't believe a whole lot. What should I do???

I just read that it is non toxic and can cause stomach upset.

Soak in a high sided container with shallow warm water for about 30 mins and monitor closely hope there is no side effects

Thanks everyone! I soaked him for about an hour and he is eating dandelion and mulberry leaves right now. I also gave him some juicy pear and romaine lettuce for hopefully a hydration boost.
