Hi all, i'm new to this forum so bear with me. I own a very small Russian Tortoise, as far as i know he's a year and a half old. He was captive bred and i have had him about 4 months. 2 months ago i had him to the vets as he was very lethargic and was always closing his eyes. I was told he had a chest infection and he recieved 4 Baytril injections over 2 weeks. He seemed 2 perk up and they discharged him. In the mean time he has again become lethargic and has started with a runny nose so this time i took him to a reptile vet. I have since found out he has pneumonia as the initial chest infection never cleared he has had to have a feeding tube fitted to his neck that goes into his stomach and has had to have several xrays and blood tests. I am so worried for him. He has 0.1ml of oral baytril daily and he is back at the vets in a few days 4 the blood test results and a check up. I am wanting as much advice as i can get please on any of the subjects i have mentioned. I have also been given reptoboost 2 soak him in but at the minute i dont want to bother him too much as he has had a rough couple of days. Any advice would be much appreciated.
