My turt has not eaten ANYTHING in over two weeks now, He is getting very \"skinny\" compared to when we got him. He never did eat much but now he does not eat at all. On top of that he started sneezing today. I raised the water temp a few days ago to 85 from 80. He basks a lot but swims as well he seems to be getting very sek though. I also have a uvb lamp for him. I have two truts the other is fine and eats like a pig (I had to feed them seperatley when I realized she was eating food for two turts)I have tried sticks fruit veggies sardines and feeder fish he just will not eat and has started sneezing. any help would be great thanks.

Here are two sites to look at about sneezing and resporitory infections. There are a few other signs as well which you can read about. One which mine is doing is swimming lopsided. I seriously think my turtle has a respiritory infection. My best friend has been such a big help, she called around for herp vets for me. You should start looking soon before it gets too late. Good luck with
with your turtle and I hope it gets better soon.
