My turtles had swollen eyes, but I used eye drops and they seem to open their eyes now, but the problem is that they still won\'t eat :(, can somebody please help me and tell me what I can do thank you.

He could have problems smelling it, if he can\'t smell it he won\'t eat it, at least that\'s how I am when I am sick, I may eat but it feels like I am eating cardboard:D

Mine is too, so nasal spray has become my best friend:D, My sister used the nasal spray one time and decided that she didn\'t like it because it made her get too much air (huh?) (wha?):D, it\'s kinda like saying \"no please, no more money, I have enough\" :D:D

They used to until they got swollen eyes. They still swim and do everything they used to. I have them for 5 months I think. Thanks for your time.

I use a nasalcrom mister, after you finish their spray liquid, just go to the dollar store to get a cheaper brand and just refill the mister, the reason is because the regular one kinda shoots a stream of the medicine into your nose, but the mister will spray a mist into your nose, much better. and cheaper, it\'s like 6.00 for the nasalcrom and about 1.50 for the regular one, and it works just as well.
