    What is wrong with my Russian tortoise?

    I got a Russian tortoise online almost 3 months ago. The breeder obviously neglected him because when he arrived, his shell is covered in different dents and scratches from what I can only assume was a bad environment. Anyways, everything was going smoothly until about a week after I got him he...

    Mushy Poos? (pic for reference...yay...haha)

    So I've had my RT for 3 weeks now, and his poos are still a bit runny and mushy. Before I got him, it looked like he was being fed just hay and pellets ugh. Well, I'm not sure if he's still adjusting to the new diet, or if I should be concerned? He's had a fecal run and it was negative. As far...

    Eating/Drinking small amounts, no pooping at all???

    My three young Desert Tortoises have been out of hibernation for 3 weeks now and they are still very sluggish. This is my second year with them and last year they were very active when they came out of hibernation. This year they are not the same. They will only eat small amounts of Romaine...

    Question about Hibernation Fasting & Poop

    In preparation of hibernation, my adult Russian male has been fasting for almost two weeks (I think this coming Tuesday is exactly two weeks). I've been giving him extra soaks to keep him hydrated. This morning I noticed he pooped just a little bit; it's shorter than an inch long. Since it has...

    Stress on my russian

    I just got a male russian tort (3-8 yo) from a pet store and I gave him his first soak in his new home but it didn't turn out as I expected.

    Is there a way to tell if your tortoise has giardia?

    Topic. Awhile back, my dog contracted giardia from God knows what. Possibly from my Sulcata tortoise? Just today my dog got ahold of fresh tortoise poop, he didn't eat it, he dropped it then I rinsed his mouth out with the hose, but I'm still worried he may contracted it again if my tortoise has...

    Tortoise wont stop trying to poop?

    ok i have about 3 separate questions relating to the root of this issue, but i felt like this needs it's own question. long story short, my russian had to get bladder stones removed (non surgically) and to say the least he's sore. the vet warned that he might keep trying to push but, as theres...
