tortoise has a bad eye
Posted: 19/10/2014 by sophie123


My tortoise is 7 years old‚ he is a horse field and I noticed this morning when I took him out from my room and put him in the garden his eye was closed and he we rubbing it with his arm. I gave him a bath and wiped it as I thought it might have been a little bit of dust from being in the garden.
There's has been no change and I'm really worried about him please help?

Hello Sophie,

Rather than wipe it, spray or trickle water on it. If it is not 'right' by Tuesday, at the latest, it will need veterinary attention. Eye problems are not common, but if not resolved quickly, can be very serious.
