I had full cleaned Spunky\'s cage and my mom told me to use clorox. We had rinsed it out really well, but it still smelled, so we took him out and rerinsed. I think we got it all out now, but he seems to be rubbing his eyes a lot, and keeps them closed more then usual. But then, I\'ve noticed him yawning the past few days... Does it sound like his eyes were irritated, or could he have pneumonia??? Either way should I take him to the vet or is he a little young? (he\'s a little less than a year)

Turtle+Chlorine=BAD!!!

Turtles\' eyes are very sensitive. To decrease chlorine amount in your water of the tank, either let the water sit for 24 hours, or buy a dechlorinzer.
