Do tortoises need to be wormed routinely?

our vet does a twice yearly poo test to see if there are worms/worm eggs & then he worms them if there are. Better than guessing because they can pick them up.  If you can't tell whose poo is whose, then do a collective test of all poo & treat all torts if there is an indication.
