The turtle has no froth coming from its mouth and isn't

Customer Question

The turtle has no froth coming from its mouth and isn't blowing bubbles from its nose so its airways seem clear and it doesn't seem to have a respiratory infection. It comes out of the water and basks in the sunshine whenever possible and seems absolutely fine apart from sleeping lopsided. It isn't making any noises or wheezing.
