Catherine Wylie ,

HI I recently spoke to Janine re my Horsefield as I was concerned that he was not eating. I have been following Janine's advice and I am very pleased to say that now a few days a week 'Humphrey' chomps into something tasty and seems to be back on track in that way. He has however developed an eye problem. There is no discharge or swelling noticeable he just seems reluctant to open it, although it opens very slightly when he has been up and walking about for a while. Just wondered if this is anything to be concerned about. Also please can i ask another two questions: do you know of any vets expert in tortoise care - we have an excellent vet for our other animals but he does not appear to know about tortoises - we live in LIncolnshire - or, is there a local list of vets with this expertise we can access. secondly - have you ever thought of providing workshops on tortoise care. There is so much conflicting information around and so many questions to be asked and I would certainly find a half day or even full day workshop very valuable, as I am sure others would. Just a thought! Many thanks Catherine Wylie [signed up for advice service last month]

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all the staff at The Tortoise Shop for the excellent customer service. After finding my baby Tunisian tortoise dead the other week and calling them in a distressed state the staff were very helpful and offered loads of sympathy. Also because I had my tortoise less than a year they replaced her within a week. Pebbles will never be replaced but having Twinkle has made it a little easier. Thanks again The Tortoise Shop u r amazing :-))) xx

Our little pipsy arrived this morning not seeming distressed in any way from his trip. He is sooooooo cute and looks right at us, already clearly tame and confident. He's had a little bath, explored his new home, has some watercress and is now basking under his lamp :) Thank you so much! My daughter loves him.
