Weight Loss/ Not Pooing.

19 November 2012 - 08:47 AM

Hi, we have a 2year year Hermann who has over the last 2weeks lost about 6 Grams in weight from 87g to 81g. And has not had a poo. Even with regular baths every other day, we have not seen her drink in the bath, previous she has always left a present in the bath for us, but not for the week. she has been eating little bits but not like she use....She is still very active /bright and very nosey .

She is in the bath for about 15 -20 mins till the water is chilly. Do we refresh the water and put her back in for another little soak.

I have read up on some other posts put up by fellow members, saying of a similar problems.
We not sure if the previous owners wormed her or not..

Any thoughts or advice would be great.
Many thanks

Weight To Size Ratio Per Week Query

14 October 2012 - 11:34 AM

hi everyone we have just purchased a a 2 year old hermann and complete set up from a close friend of ours.

we have had her for 2 weeks now. after the 1st week we weighed her she went from 82 -83 grams..

yesterday we weighed her again she went from 83 - 97 grams. her carapace length is 70mm

should we be worried how much she has put on very quickly or is this normal for her size..

we are feeding her on the usual weed leaves dandelion, plantain,etc the odd spinach leaf
and a few pellets each week 8 pellets spread out over the week..

or is she just a very content tort..

any advice would be great.

many thanks
