My RES turtle seems to be having trouble swallowing her food. I just noticed it today. She usually doesn\'t have any trouble at all. She actually coughed some of it back up today like she was choking on it. So when I fed her again I broke it into very small pieces (floating sticks) and dropped it into her water but she still seemed to have trouble swallowing it. Does anyone know what might be causing this or what I should do? She is still her usual self otherwise. Thanks for your help.
