My 2 year old male RT, Franklin, hasn't been eating much and he doesn't poop unless I soak him. I tried all kinds foods from Tortoise Table, but I try to feed him veggies like kale, red and green leaf lettuce, romaine, radicchio and endive, etc. He lives in a Zoomed Tortoise house, which I plan to upgrade and I use ecoearth as substrate. I have a 75 W basking bulb and 100 watt heat emitter for the winter months. The UVB I use are 2 T8 ReptiSun 10.0 linear fluorescent bulbs. I want to take him outside, but the weather hasn't been good. His eyes are clear and I do not see any discharge from his nose. I wanted to reach out to the group for advice on how I can stimulate his appetite before I take him to a vet. Thanks in advance for any advice you have to offer.
