I took out one of my larger male rtb bci this morning to do my regular morning check ups, and as i was letting him crawl about around my shoulders and chest I heard a super faint whistle/wheezing, i almost passed it off as me for a second but then i heard it again really faint... this time I knew it was him.
so I immediately started checking the rest of him out his eyes, nostrils, and mouth are all nice and clear. He was nice and strong and exploratory (his norm) no signs of any skin abrasions or ailments.
my thought was his tank,nice and clean, he defecated nice and smooth about 5 days ago and was feed 2 days ago this morning f/t lrg rat. his humidity is good, his temp was nice when I picked him up... about 75 at 7am (he was on his cooler side of the gradient though) my only remaing variable is overnight temps, his warm side stays about 70-80 depending on the outside temps... but his cooler side here recently i've seen in the 60's at night...
what should I do? I don't want to jump to conclusions i.e.(IBD)
but then again I want to make sure I can help him in time?

how many respitory ailment are there that cause wheezing?
which ones are treatable?
how would u go about doing so?
how long should i monitor him before i should seek a professional?( have one already)


any comments would be greatly appreciated
