Is it best to take my tortoise to the vets to worm them they are not pooing worms but one is very slow and not as moveable as the other leopard.I have only had them a short while .I have marginated and I havent wormed them yet.

Sorry for long delay, my computer was poorly!
As you have only had them a little a while, then a trip to a specialist tortoise vet to check them over would be a good idea. If they do have worms then the vet can give the right amount medication that is needed for their body weight etc. Have you got the marginated and the leopards in a separate pen? where did you get the leopards from?
