In Topic: How Soon After Worming Should My Tortoise Poop?

10 October 2014 - 06:20 PM

Update on Harry and Lola. Went back to vet last Wednesday Lola had picked up a bit but Harry seemed much worse, vet decided to hospitalise them both as they have never been separated, new worm sample was done still massive high count so readjustment to dosage. Harry breathing was becoming laboured so an X-Ray of lungs was done fortunately it was clear... Harry is being feed assisted, bathed and monitored. Rang vet today to be told Harry is a bit brighter today passing loads of worms so hopefully he will clear out soon.
And vet bill isn't too bad I must say, will definitely be sticking with this practice.

The vet just said it was a very high worm loads and as he hadn't eaten for a while he was given an injection of calcium and something else which I can't remember something with electrolytes in and some kind of supplement. He then told me to bath him putting reptoboost in his bath. Lola my female has been eating and tramping around but Harry has just started eating today, he us still very lethargic . I haven't seen any worms.
