Hi Gang,
I just returned from the vet who administered a Baytril shot to right arm of RingoStar Tortoise for his RI. I asked about using Fortaz (I had read here Fortaz was better for treating stars but he said he did not have the Fortaz antibiotic). Ringo is resting in his enclosure- in his shell and Not Happy. I was given 7 shots in total to administer every 3 days; each about 1.25 ml. Id appreciate any feedback. Ringo is so withdrawn- he's not at all usually like this. At the slightest touch to his shell he retracts- so sensitive. What temperature is best for him as he recovers? He seems like he dosent want/cant move around /
Thanks
