I have George who is around 1 year old and is great & I also have tiny, he was given to me When he arrived sept I was told he was around 1 year old he didn’t eat or poop couldn’t open his eye and didn’t move much- after a visit to the vet an a 3 week of antibiotic he is now eating and pooping regular, In sept he weighed just 56g but he hasn’t grown or put any weigh on since 57/58g now
Any advice ?

It's Sulcata and they are NOT turtles, they are tortoises. Go to the index and then find the For Sale or adoptions and put your ad there

a few days late but.. they don't breathe through their shell? assuming you think they have pores (that they breathe through) in their shell, they don't. you should soak her in water every few days or so. you could also apply oil too. a tiny bit of cold pressed organic coconut coil or olive oil would be fine.
I've just read about ten rave reviews of your tortoise food. :) Do you have products suitable for gopherus agassizi?

I do, they might all be thought of as the annual weed type plants - dandelion, plantain, marsh mallow, red clover herb, alfalfa. What is your tortoise eating now? Most of these things are intended to be mixed in with grocery store greens to increase nutrient density and fiber.
