Hi everyone,
My star tortoise was doing good last year before hibernating but it is eating really less and inactive this summer.
From yesterday I am seeing swelling on its body.I am really worried about it, can someone suggest me any treatment. I can not find any vet nearby

This looks to be a very serious problem. There's nothing we can do to help you. The tortoise needs an X-ray. And it looks like he's gasping, which indicates a respiratory infection. Please try harder to find a vet.

Oh holy cow. That is very bad, you need to look hard for a Vet, possibly a regular Vet can help you. That tort is in bad shape. Do you have a wildlife rescue around?

I`ve never heard that star tortoises hibernate ! Your tortoise is very sick and needs a vet appointment asap.
