I bought a Hermann's tortoise recently from the pet store. He was half off bc he has 2 "gouges" holes forming on his plastron. I have 4 other healthy torts, I've never dealt with any kind of shell issues.. I have tried betadine, Silver x, (which takes care of both fungal & bacterial), & Triple antibiotic ointment (Which seems to work the best) I've made him a vet appt but it's 2 weeks away. He seems fine, walks normal, eating/drinking normal but I dont want it to get any worse. I'm curious if anyone has dealt with this & had any luck with any otc products or even home remedies that i haven't been trying? He's such a sweet boy It breaks my heart to think he may be in pain. Again, I have tried betadine liquid & spray powder, Silver x, & Triple antibiotic ointment. Thanks!
