3150. A 5-year-old red-eared slider sneezed for 3 days and is anorexic. Why?






A well cared for red-eared slider as evident by her shell length of 18 cm and good shell and body condition. See video.  Sneezing for around 3 days. Not eating for more than 3 days. No swollen eyes or runny nose or gasping. As normal as can be.




X rays - no eggs.




Antibiotics 3 days including one injection.
Phoned owner of Sep 27, 2017. Slider does not sneeze and eats 100% of pellets given.
