Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile rescue.
Can you tell me where the Sulcata is housed?
Is it eating?
If outside could it have ingested a foreign body?
Diet you are feeding?
If inside do you have a UVB bulb? Linear tube or compact coil, strength and brand?
Type of substrate?
Please do not use Mineral oil. I suggest some baby food prunes to try and promote a Stool. Once they are fed, wait an hour and then give a soak in a 50/50 warm water and Pedialyte soak. That will help with electrolytes. The white you see in the stool is urates and is a form of urine being passed. If you are not seeing any this can mean dehydration. I am concerned with the lack of stool, weakness and lack of urates we may be dealing with a Kidney issue. That is very common in Sulcata tortoises. She will require a Herp Vet visit to have some blood work done and an Xray. The Vet can give some fluids to also help.
