I think! Its north of England, scottish borders.
If you google tpg vet list, I believe there is a vetm ist on thetortoisetable.org too
Has the suspected prolapse gone back in yet? (If not dont let it dry out, cover in vaseline and cling film)

got everything sorted by vet in cockermouth and oral antibiotics. Worms seams to have been problem but other near identical tortoise is ok, had it dosed anyway. my own vet took stitch out of torts bum after 1 week and so far so good.
