I have two Hermann's tortoise with me in Qatar. I went away
I have two Hermann's tortoise with me in Qatar. I went away on holiday and left both with a friend who has always taken good short-term care of them. After returning, I received both tortoises back in a dehydrated state. They had lost weight and their eyes were sunken. After hours of soaking in a warm bath, the weight has come back on and their eyes opened fully from a semi-closed position. They have been soaking for periods of 1 hour or so about 3 times a day. Conditions here are warm and dry inside. Both tortoises have been listless and not eating or drinking or passing any solid or liquid waste for 5 days now. The larger one is often struggling to breathe with neck stretching and gasping. Do you have any suggestions? … read more

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
