I have a 6 month old Horsfield tortoise, during him eating I noticed him making a squeaking noise and pushing his head into his shell and out his shell a few times quite fast. He has very small bubbles coming out of his nose, almost looks like he has a runny nose.
please help and advise me on what I can do for him. I can’t get a vets appointment until Friday so any help would be really appreciated.

A first good step is to increase your temperatures. What type of enclosure? Is it fully enclosed or an open top?
If open top, come up with a good plan to full enclose the box, keeping temps & humidity up.

Upload some pix of the enclosure & lighting.

Lastly, read through & tweak your set-up based on the advice in this care guide.
