    By eggbinding is meant the inability to pass an egg, and the female tortoise in this situation will be in discomfort and may appear to be straining.

    Homeopathic treatment usually works very well to solve this problem.

    If eggbinding has been diagnosed or is suspected you can give Arnica 30c, once or twice a day as required.

    If the Arnica works insuffiently give Caulophyllum 30c, same dosing as for Arnica.

    Administration of the homeopathic remedy : One of the possible ways of administration is to crush 1-2 tablets with a clean spoon on a piece of paper, or crush the remedy between 2 clean spoons, and place half of the powder on the food and half in the water.
