    Urgent!!! Please help !!My 2 turtles have a disease!!!

    I have 2 turtles, one is 5 years old and one is 5 months old. My 5 month old turtle was inactive and didn't eat. I put my 5 month turtle into a new tank, and I put my 5 year old turtle into the 5 month old turtle's former tank. Now, my 5 year old turtle is opening his mouth whenever I pick him up. He also makes a gasping noise when I pick him up. If you can please help me I will give you 20 dollars.

    Sorry I don't know a thing about turtles but my suggestion is to get another new tank for your 5 yr. old asap and ditch the old tank. I just hope it works out okay. Keep us posted.

    Eric, I have no experience with turtles, but if they look very sick, they should be taken to a reptile vet. If the turtle is opening his mouth, it may be respiratory related, possibly and infection. What kind of turtles do you have? How long have you had them?

    Here's a page of common turtle illnesses, their symptoms and treatments. Look it over to learn more. http://www.personal.psu.edu/pjg5127/.../illnesses.htm

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
