    I got a female ball python a few months ago and she was acting strange so we brang her to the vet and she had nemonia so we had to give her shots for six weeks but she stopped eating for a very long time and i know that sometimes they go threw phases like this but its been more than 1 month now and I dont know if i should bring her back to the vet. Please help!o_O

    We are going to need more info. Size, age of snake, conditions you are housing it etc. Photos may help as well.

    And don't get too worried yet unless the snake is noticeably losing weight. A month is nothing, my personal record is eight months with one, and I have a friend or two that have had them go over a year without eating while losing very little weight. And they will usually go off feed for medication, so between new home, illness and meds, it may just be needing some extra time to settle. Have you been keeping track of it's weight? Would be some good info for us to have.
