Young Horsefield Very lethargic not moving much.
Posted: 05/08/2014 by Plankie

Hi there

So worried about our young Horsefield.

He has had the wrong light for some weeks now.

We thought was a combined one...but it wasn't and was only a heat light, NOT a UV one.

 He's so lethargic...not moving much and we are really really worried.

We now have a uv light and heat light. 

What should we do to help him get back to normal.

Thank you

Hello,


Where did you obtain it & what advice were you given?

Click on "The Tortoise" box on the left & download a Caresheet. 
It's difficult to suggest improvements, as you don't say exactly how you are keeping it. There is lots of info. In the boxes.

If you bought your tort, the seller is responsible for providing proper advice, note this in case veterinary treatment becomes necessary.

Regards,
Tom
