    Signs of ill health can be difficult to detect in pet tortoises, but reluctance to eat remains one of the most common reasons for a tortoise to be presented to the veterinary practice. Anorexia may be secondary to inappropriate husbandry or diet or a sign of multiple underlying disease processes. This lecture will cover the approach to the anorexic tortoise, including initial evaluation, diagnostics and therapeutic plans.
