I have a 15year old tortoise. She seems to have stopped eating

Customer Question

I have a 15year old tortoise. She seems to have stopped eating but is not ready to hibernate - weather still quite warm. She is indoors now, unless it is a particularly fine day when she goes back out in the garden. She is active and hurtles around. I'm concerned that as she has stopped eating she will lose the reserves of food she has built up over the past 5 months or so. I've tried tempting her with food but she just ignores it. Could you please advise. Thanks
