    hey guys just to let you all know that my snakes mouth is getting better and better, still not interested in her meals but her mouth is better. I still need to force feed her because of this, and I will till she does become hungry for a rat or mouse. for now she just does not like it.

    Glad to hear that things are getting better for you and her. I am sure you will get her back up and running/slithering around like new soon. Hopefully, she will get to the point where she will eat on her own soon.

    As long as you are feeding her she probably will not want to eat. She doesn't need to. You are supplying the food. You will probably have to stop the feeding and wait a week or so for her to be interested in feeding on her own.

    I am so glad to hear this. By no means an expert advice, but I would probably feed her until you feel like she has truly healed and its okay for her to wait until she is hungry. She has been through a lot. A virtual hug to both of you. You have been a great mom.

    I just want to let people know that she is very weak all of a sudden....I have no idea why...she seems skinnier and it was very hard to get the food down her troath tonight. I am worried :( her mouth look about the same not completely healed but pretty stable. I really wish she would get interested with mice again....I can't feed her canned food forever. I gave her about 12 ml of canned food tonight...its not a lot but I'm sure it helps. what I do is do everything the same day...injection, subcu and force feeding and this is every 3 days then I let her be for 3 whole days and do it again. I'm trying to handle her to the min. she is weak now....I hope she can hold on....I have done so much....it would destroy me if she died....its not the money that I care about....it's all the time I spent making her better....

    I'm a new member, and just read the whole thread. Let me say that I am so sorry. I couldn't imagine going thru something like this. At least for your baby's sake, she has a caring, responsible and determined owner. You have been doing an excellent job! Just hang in there, and be strong. Things will get better.
