Ok so what I got from Amazon looks similar to it!

But it’s the gel!

I was looking for it online!

Is there anything to give them to poop?

I haven’t feed anything that cause constapation?? Unless the substrate is causing it!!

Yes, those are the drops. You will need an Rx from a vet to buy them if you notice the wording at the bottom of the picture. Maybe you hometown vet would give you the Rx.
Ima ask how much because if it’s to much I’ll have to wait till my next paycheck!!

For constipation you need to soak in warm water for 30-45 minutes. Make sure the water is very warm but not hot. I put my hand in and if it’s not too hot on my hand than it’s good. Also can feed aloe and cactus and different kinds of lettuce. They provide moisture.
Be very careful at the vet. Just try to get the eye drops. Don’t get any vitamin injections.

Needs grasses and hay. You can order orchard grass from Amazon. You can also check out this site for tortoise food. Kapidolo Farms. Greens should only be 10% of his diet. He needs more fiber.

But someone suggested no Hay because he’s too little!!
How big is he?? The orchard grass hay is soft. I’ve been feeding it to mine since he was tiny. You have to soak it in water and mince it up. Mix it with the greens to get him used to it. Timothy Hay is harder and usually the tiny ones can’t eat it. Do have any other grass in your yard??

They cannot eat hay easily at a young age, but they need/ need to be offered grass at all possible feeding times. If you can't find much grass, use Mazuri LS or Grassland tortoise diet pellets
