We have a 3 year old red eared slider that is about 8". She is a voracious feeder usually. I noticed the last two days she hadn't eaten any greens, Tonight I gave her her the protein meal and she completely ignored the food. This is totally not like her, Any suggestions. We are really worried.

Try some treats and bump up the water temperatures a little. Any other changes?

The water temperature is 82. There are no other obvious changes. I looked at her shell top and bottom and couldn't find any soft spots. She hasn't basked the last couple of days/

What does her protein meal consist of? Have you seen any poop?
