Problems Happen To My Tort

17 February 2013 - 12:39 PM

Hi firends! My tort was hibernating well in box in my balcony with the temperature about 10 centidigree for monthes, but In Feburary the temperature is viberating so my tort wakes up in daytime and sleep at night. She is not found eating and drinking till now. Days before she spilt the cup and slept in wet cushion and quilt. I cleaned her "room" when I found that. I thought she is ok but today I see she has a stuffy nose and painful eyes, and she left brown discharge(like urates). I guess she must catch cold due to that time. And today I gave her a bath with the warm water mixed with amoxiciline. It seems that she did not like it as usual and choked by water and had a whistling breath. I am worried about her very much. Now I take her in my living room with the temperature above 20 centidigree and I plan to give her the treatment as above.
I am not sure I am right or not. I need your advices! And I am worried about her not taking food and early waking up.What can I do to help her?
