    Hello,
    Just wanted to give an update. Otsokrikri completed his second round of Meds this past weekend and I took a fecal sample into the Vet today. Got a call a little while ago that the sample was clear of parasites! Hooray! I’m planning to move him out of the enclosure tonight so I can get everything out and clean. He has NOT liked being on newspaper these past few weeks. Anything else I should ask the Vet?

    I'm still having nightmares about what came out of my Tortoises.
