I just bought her two days ago, so I'm not sure about health history. For the most part she swims normally, but she occasionally turns to the side while she's swimming. Is this early SBD? She doesn't have any bloating. She's also been hiding more than the other girls (one I've had for awhile, the other one came home yesterday) but I didn't think anything of it, since she's new and adjusting to her new home. But now that I see her swimming a bit odd, I'm worried. Any suggestions?
I took a video of her swimming on my phone, I'll post it when I figure out how to send it to my computer
Thanks in advance!!
