Tortoise Repiratory Problem
by: Shelly

It sounds like you are right about the fact that your tortoise has a respiratory problem, but I can't be sure.

I found a very good page for you. Here is part of what it says. "The specific treatment of respiratory disease obviously depends on the cause of the disease and how serious the problem is."

You can read more at This information may help you to know what the problem is and tell you what choices there are for helping your tortoise.

Keep it slow and steady.
