Eyes swollen shut
Posted: 19/04/2017 by Mreynolds

my tortoise sheldon has always been very active and never stops eating, however yesterday when I bathed him and fed him I noticed his eyes were completely swollen shut and almost look like two blisters, he's not eaten and isn't moving much, I'm not sure what to do, any advice?

Hello,

From what you state it is clearly in a life threatening state. It needs urgent vet' treatment. Whereabouts do you live ? [NOT your address]. Let me know & I'll try to find the nearest reptile vet.

This is very likely to be linked to a husbandry problem. Just post again for more advice after your trip to the vet.
