Hi Katie,
I alawys remember going to Pets at Home a few years back and bought a hamster for 5.50, after a short while he wasnt feeding so I took him to the vet whithin the store.He said he wanted 12 to take a look at him.I just laughed at him and asked what he charged for a pet ant pointing out I could buy 2 of them for the price of looking at the one I had.I saw a list of examples on the net suggesting 37.50 for half hour consultation, bearing in mind I have 2 I think I was right about the second mortgage, also if the medication is administered by the vet will it mean 2 trips each.Me thinks should have got 2 hamsters instead. LoL

Hope you got on okay at the vets
When the worms start to appear, you will need to be strict about hygiene to avoid re-infection of your tort. It might be best to keep him in a temporary smaller enclosure which is easier to clean on a daily basis. Throw out the hemp and clean throughly. Some torts can be a bit lethargic and miserable after worming if they have a worm load, just make sure your temperatures and conditions are suitable.
Good luck

I'm so sorry to hear about your tortoise. I unfortunatley bought my 2 hermanns from a pet shop. Thankfully they survived and they are nearly 10 now. After reading all the information on this site though now I would never even think of going to a pet shop for a tortoise. However after reading your message I panicked and checked where mine came from and they too came from Wilton pet shop. I must have been lucky.

Is there nothing that can be done to stop these places selling torts? There is also one a few miles away from where I live, in Drayton, Hampshire and the tortoises all look so sad in there, marching up and down their tiny tanks. Obviously very stressed out. :-(

I bought mine from a reptile centre a few years ago, and after reading all of this I suppose it's a good idea to give him that "panacur liquid" just incase she has worms? Do I have to take her to the vets or can I buy the liquid myself and give it her by myself? There isn't any signs she has worms but it's beter to be safe than sorry :-)
Thanks
Rich

Hi desertrat,

You can buy Pancur liquid/paste from pharmacy's (Manor Pharmacy if you have them where you live). However, if your tort is young it can be hard to work out the dosage yourself - I mean how on earth do you give 1mg of Pancur to a struggling tort!!

Best to go to the vets and have a check up and worming together.
