    Respiratory infection?

    I recently got my new bp and he ate on the 18th of august and hasn't eaten since (3 weeks). I wouldn't be worried but I saw him yawn one time a couple days and then today I heard him wheezing. I had picked him up about 15 minutes before and I didn't hear anything but then I saw him getting a drink and I sprayed down his tank but I did't really come close to him and then I heard him wheeze. Are all of the symptoms a coincidence or could this be an issue? I'm also wondering if they wheeze after drinking sometimes? halppp! I also moved with him but it was only a 3 hour break from his tank at the most but the stress could be why he's not eating.

    He might have a little water in his nose...keep re-checking at least daily over the next few days, see if you hear anything or see bubbles, mucus around mouth.

    He might not be eating due to the stress of moving...even though you did all the packing he's aware that something changed. Be patient.
    Many friends in low places...

    Yeah water or even dust / tiny piece of substrate in the nostrils ..

    Iím sure heíll be fine .


    They can be slightly effected after a change of some sort so that may be the reason
