    A case for veterinary "well" visits.

    I just wanted to write a quick post about why I feel veterinary care, especially a well visit upon acquiring a new tortoise, is a good idea. (I understand that this is potentially a debatable topic, and so moderators can move it if they wish to do so.) For me, annual well visits to the vet...

    Sid LOVES Lasagna!!

    Sid certainly loves Dean's Mazuri LAsagna. (He's got some Panacur added in for his little worm problem.) Our recipe differs from Dean's just a little. Ours is Mazuri, timothy hay, cactus, red leaf lettuce, fresh grass, and Panacur

    Sid visits the vet!

    Sid took a ride with the family today. He got to meet his vet. Needless to say, everyone at the vets office was very excited to meet Sid. His exam went well. He was very cooperative. I feelmcomfortable now that he has a baseline with a trusted local vet just in case he ever needs her in the...

    New Family Member has Arrived: Sid

    We welcomed a new member into our family today. A sulcata. Welcome Sid! (Official name is Darth Sidious, just to stick with the geeky Star Wars theme!) He arrived today and so far seems to be doing well. He has been exploring his new home and eating and pooping. What a life! I will get...

    Grass clippings?

    Every time I cut my grass I empty the grass clipping into the woods. Any way of saving these and feeding to my torts? I feel like if I just dump them into their enclosures it will dry up too quickly.
