Where can I buy a Worm Count Kit ?
Posted: 15/10/2015 by Samantha Berringer

Hello

I have a Hermans Tortoise, Eric who is just over 1 year old,  since I have had him he has put on weight steadily, however he has not gained any now for 4 weeks. I am wondering if this could be because of worms?  If so please can you advise where I can get a testing kit from?   Also how would he have got them??  He is kept in a Tortoise Table inside with Top-soil and is fed weeds/flowers from my garden.  Thanks

Hello,

Arrange to take a sample to a vets, the cost is nominal.

If it is from a pet dealer - then it's likely to be infested.

Regards,
Tom
