    Hi, so i am new around here and i need some advice. I have a tortoise she is nearly four year old and she was suppose to hibernate this year for the first time but she became unwell. She lost quite a bit of weight so i went to the vets and they kept her in for a few day, they also placed a feeding tube as she wouldnt eat no matter what and they started her on anitiboitics because the suspected parasites. She was doing okay, she gained a bit of weight so i got her back yesterday and i am a bit worried becasue she is really lethargic and she slept the whole day today so far. She is just not herself at all. I know that she is unwell and that tortoises take a wee while to get better but i am not sure, should i call the vets? Should i just give her a bit more time? She doesnt have any other symptoms, her nose is nice and dry and her mouth is nice and pink so i am not sure what to do. I just don't want anything bad happen to her or her getting worse, she is really dear to me.
