Hello I wonder if anyone can help please?

I have 2 Horsefields (3 yrs old) this has been their third hibernation, only this time one is not eating at all!. I am bathing her every other day and she goes under the lamp as soon as it comes on. She appears bright enouph but will not eat a thing!
Her sister on the other hand is eating for England if I let her.
Can anyone give me some advice please

Thanks and regards
Lesley

Hi Lesley,

How long have your torts been out of hibernation? It sometimes does take a while for them to eat, but there is also something called post-hibernation aneorexia:

scroll down to the section on waking up and then problems that might occur.
