Hello, our marginated tortoise went to the vet's about two weeks back and was apparently sick, so the doctor kept him for a bit, gave him some antibiotics that didn't help, then some that did, and we took him back home. This was a week ago. Since then, he hasn't been eating or pooping. He doesn't even show interest in food. We soak him every day, he has warmth, light, all that. When we put food in front of him, he throws up. Could this be due to the meds? I'm really scared for him :(

Can we see a pic of your tort and his enclosure. Is there any red tinge on the shell that might indicate scepsis

He's getting a soak now. We've called the vet and we're bringing him in again later today, so hopefully we'll get some advice
