is my turtle sick??

by Adrienne

My turtle Mojo isn't using his back legs when he swims...He has his back legs pulled into the back of his shell....I'm just a little worried because he looks laboured now and he used to be so lively....

He is still eating very well....What should i do??
Is this serious??

I hope you can help. I'm very attached to him. I just want him to get better!!

Hello Adrienne,

You don't say how long you've had your turtle. If this is a change in normal behavior, check with your veterinarian.

Mojo is lucky to have someone who cares about him paying attention to his health. Can you come back here and post what the veterinarian says?
