How often will my little fellas need worming? They were wormed by the pet shop before i bought them.
Thanks
Amy ;-)

Honey always have the poo of your tortoise looked at by a vet under a microscope to see if any worms are there. If there aren't any then they don't need worming. Please don't give worming medicines to torts unnecessarily, only if they need it. A vet who is use to treating tortoises would know this, hope this helps:)

just to add to what Omare said, i am sending some poo samples off to my vets tomorrow to check my two new tortoises for worms, the test will only cost about 8 and they you will know for sure.
