Listless Hermann

Postby michaelp » Wed Jul 29, 2015 2:20 pm

My six year old Hermann male has become very listless. He is usually very lively. A few weeks ago he significantly stopped eating, he is not getting up to bask much and did not pass stools for a couple of weeks or so.
We have recently been giving him daily baths and some opuntia cactus. He has passed some green stools.
He remains very listless, and is not even eating the cactus the last couple of days.
His normal staple diet is cultivated weeds, but he also has some sedums and lettuce.
He hibernated in the 'fridge and got up and got going fine n the indoor table.
He is in a purpose built outside reptile/greenhouse with two 100w magarays and a 100w ceramic 'bulb'. This is linked to an enclosed outside run.
Any advice particularly about the green poo would be appreciated.
Thank you.
Michael

I would get him to a tortoise vet, these sort of things shouldnt be left.
Although aloe vera can make odd poos. But if he is listless as well, the above is needed.
