 Rescued tortoise some help please

hi guys not been on in a long time all my pets are still doin fine
problem is someone out with a dog found a torty the dog picked it up its a small 3 inch yearling this was very distressing that he found this outside in the middle of a uk winter the little thing has no weight to it the the plates are sunk in the way and he has rns which i have the vet booked for to deal with for some treatment to it i dont no how long he has been out side for and has had no proper care or light am amazed he is still alive actually, i think its a spur thighed it has very small spurs on its legs and a female am sure she is slowly eating a bit more each day 3 days i have had her and drinking now as well and haveing a bath everyday now to rehydrate her
can any one comfirm the species and if u have any tips or suggestions to help her would be great
i have 2 hermans both over 13 they are separate for this one so not need to worry about rns goin on to them ones
thanks


here is a pic of her u can see the damaged shell and the one thing that worrys me is some small red spots on the bottom plates it could be seeping through from inside ?will find out at vet next week when she goes for a health check

I just joined the Tortoise list or I would have posted. What did the vet say about the red spots?

Testudo Graeca Graeca (Moroccan Spur thighed) i would imagine. they are incredibly susceptible to RNS.
