Hi

Can anyone recommend a good tortoise worming medicine that I can give to several varieties of torts ?
Thanks Carl

Hello,


Have you found evidence of worms in faecal samples ?
Which "varieties" (species) do you have & what are their ages. 
How do you keep them ? & are different species kept separately ?

Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom I've got 2 leopards 

2 Herman's 
1 horsfield
And 1 Iberia whitei 
The leopards are together and the horsfield and 1 Herman are on there own but the whitei and a Herman's are together as they have been for 50 years I can't see any signs of worms but the vet said they should be done every year and he charged 14 each ! 
Thanks Carl
