Vet time
by: Shelly

Again, if your animal's behavior changes in a way that concerns you, see a vet. No one, not even a vet, can accurately diagnose a medical problem without seeing the patient.

Keep it slow and steady.

my tortoise has had me scared to death the last 5-6 days, she is making a VERY loud whining/ wheezing sound, only at night, is it constipation or something stuck in it's mouth?

If your tortoise's behavior has changed and you are worried, I suggest you see a vet. No one can properly diagnose an animal without seeing it.

Keep it slow and steady.

Is it a whine or a wheeze?

A wheeze would need a vet. I'm not sure about the whine.
