i have owned my pet red eared slider for 2 years, shes bout 11 inches long 8 1/2 inches wide, fully grown i assume... anyways she has a cracked bottom jaw, i have never seen this before on a pet turtle. Sometimes when she bites down i hear a loud pop, it seems to be painful , ill feed her and she\'ll take a bite and swallow it then the next bite here jaw pops and she spits the food out and doesnt continue to eat, what should i do? put vaseline on the crack? contact a vet?

contact the vet and now! this is actually serious. there is a surgery that can correct this, and it needs to be. if she stops eating it can lead to more health problems. and that\'s something else u don\'t need to worry about.
