My hatchling looks like it is swollen with fluid---Help

by Rose Traylor
(San Bernardino, CA USA)

In the last 3 days my Greek hatchling (just under a year and 25 grams and I've had her since she was a month old. Her sibling is doing fine) seems to be swelling. Her shoulders, legs and neck seem really puffy like she is full of fluid. Now tonight I find she is keeping one eye closed. And has some open mouth breathing. There is no vet available at this time of night. Is there anything I can do to help her? She has been eating OK even this morning. No unknown plants were given to her.
