I brought her from importer one month ago.

I don't know what kind a worm in my redfoot. How to help him? I already bring my redfoot to the vet. And get deworm. One week after, I still see the worm alive from my redfoot poop.

Here's the video.
Sorry about my broken English.
What should I do?

It looks like perhaps whatever you fed her has worked as a dewormer. I understand that there are many plants and seeds that can work like this.

I already give her second dose of deworm. I saw death worm (long worm) but different with the worm I saw before (small worm) .

Now she didn't want to eat, but she still want to drink.

I always soak her in the water morning and afternoon to keep her in hydration.

Should I give her 3rd dose?

I heard pumpkin is a natural dewormer, specifically the seeds. Might be wrong for tortoises but for animals like our horses, goats and pigs it is. Can't hurt, mine loves pumpkin anyway
