Sick Pet
by: Shelly

You need to get your pet to a vet as soon as possible. It is sick. It would be best if you have access to a vet who specializes in reptiles, but any vet will be better than no vet.

Keep it slow and steady.

I own two red foots and have never heard mine do this .If it keeps up I would see a vet , pet stores tend to lie to sell things . And most of the time they have no idea what they are talking about . Hope your little guy is ok , good luck :)
