Hello everyone, I recently purchased a trio of RT's from a local reptile only store with a good reputation. Obvious imports, but otherwise healthy.
Two are doing great. My LG Female is not so great... We have noticed some symptoms but not yet gone to the vet $$$ what can I say.
She rubs her eyes alot, clear but recessed. eys closed ALOT
she eats/voids with seemingly no complications.
energy is on or off... she will move for sudden bursts then just takes a breather
she is 343 grams 11.2 cm in length

I read some posts about importers medicating the fems for egg production could this be a side effect from such actions?
if so what should we boost her with for recovery?

Thanks for your help
KEN
