Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and reptile Rescue.
Is there any open mouth breathing?
How often does he make this sound?
Any bubbles from nose or mouth?
Thank-you! I think at ths point we are safe. He is not exhibiting any signs of a respiratory infection whch would be the open mouth breathing, the bubbles from nose or mouth, decreased appetite and lethargy. With that being said, Tortoises can be vocal especially Males in mating season. I would just keep an eye on him for any of the symptoms mentioned. Should they occur, then a Herp Vet visit would be needed to be checked out hands on. If you supply a State, I can locate some for you. My Goal is a 5 star rating and to give you 100% excellent service. Please let me know on the need of a Herp Vet.
I wanted to check in on your tortoise. How is he doing? Any further noises or problems?
