So, ran into something im not familiar with and i have a question. Fang, my 20+ year old sweetheart ball python has been on baytril for an respiratory infection. He has about 3 shots left maybe.... I noticed tonight while straightening up that he still has his head in the air to help him breathe easier. There is no more bubbles, mucus, clicking, etc. So he is on the mend I think. My question is this, at the same time I seen him with his mouth open, breathing halfway normal, his mouth is not a healthy pink. At all. It is almost white with a tad tiny pink tint. It isn't mouth rot, but I'm worried because of his age. I've always heard that snakes should have a healthy pink tint to thier mouths. Is there any merit to this? I am going to call the vet back in the morning to give the update, so I'll ask her also, but wanted to run it it by you all also. Could it be drying a bit from where he has kept his mouth open? Or stress from the shots? Or am I just dreaming stuff up because I know he doesn't have another 20+ years in him? Lol As always, thank you guys for your help!!
