    Hello I rehomed a 16 year old Hermanns tortoise 2 months ago and he settled in well at first and I am continuing to feed her the foods her previous owner said he liked but has since stopped eating (maybe a few bites of cucumber)
    I took him to the vets who said he was hydrated enough (I bath him every day) and I’ve upped his UV time due to UK rainy summer but even the “treat” foods the vet suggested to get his appetite (small bit of banana and other fruit ) hasn’t worked. I need to take a poo sample back to vets but he’s not pooed for awhile
    Any helpful suggestions would be amazing please ?
