As most of you have probably read, Talyn seriously injured herself the night after Christmas. http://www.herpcenter.com/showthread.php?t=2065&page=1&pp=10 It's a bad injury: one major cut with the skin torn off to the muscle and another big slice as well as smaller puncture wounds, so don't look if you have a weak stomach! She seems to be handling it better than me: she is alert, active and she ate a good-sized rat shortly after the injury. My husband (a people doctor) checks the wounds daily as we wash them out and apply antibiotic creams: Question: does anyone have any experience with wound-healing with their snakes? Will this wound scab? Will the skin and scales grow back? How long does it take for snake wounds to heal? I've heard they go through several sheds rapidly after injury... my vet is hopelessly unhelpful here... I just want to know what to expect.. Thanks!
