Hi Guys, I think my Greek Spur thighed tortoise may have Shell Rot, her shell is peeling underneath her shell. I am looking to do a full treatment on her to clear it up however not too sure on how I would do this. Could somebody give me some advise? Also I read when you are treating shell rot you need to remove the water bowl to ensure she doesnt drink any of the cream thats applied to the affected area, is this correct? If yes how do I make sure she gets water if the treatment lasts for a couple of weeks?
Thanks in advance
