My son and I are locally known by the pet store as reptile lovers so today when I went in to get feeders for our collection the manager gave me a ball python. They were going to kill it but he felt that I might be able to save it.
The snake is swollen, and squishy to the touch. she is not opposed to being handled and shows no visible signs of bieng uncomfortable. If I squeeze or poke her a little to hard she opens her mouth and hisses so it obviously causes discomfort.
At the store she has been eating and pooping just fine, she spent 90% of her time lounging in her water bowl.
They have taken her to a crappy vet, the vet could not figure out what is wrong. I have an appointment for her Monday @ 9AM with the only local vet that treats exotics.
I would love some ideas / input and maybe some treatment ideas.
