Help! I've was given 2 marginated tortoises (both about 1 year old) a year ago with full set up, but became concerned with the health of the tortoises. It turns out I had the wrong lamp! I took them to a vet last week and I have been told they both have MBD! I've been given drops to give them both, but I'm really struggling to give them the drops! Is they anyone in the Dover area who can help me look after them?

Many thanks

Dave

Hello,


Make a simple outside pen, so that they can benefit from the best form of UVB light. Provide access to shade.

From September use a100W Mega ray UVB bulb.

Regards,
Tom
