    Hey guys.
    So I've been really worried about Jasmine here lately, so I got some reccomendations for herp vets, and I'm going to call them tomorrow to get some prices.
    Her skin is really, really dry, and she looks so skinny.
    We've tried feeding her, but she is totally not intersted in food. We spray her tank over 5 times a day, and she has a huge pan of water.
    The petstore that i talk to today said to try spraying vitamin spray on her and see if that helps any.
    Also, when I had come back from the grocery a few minutes ago, i noticed that she had pooped. But it is a strange looking poop, which makes me think even more that something else is wrong. There is a large marshmallow sized mass of urates, and another one about the same size thats green. It is almost diearrhea (sp) like. There is also some liquid brown under all this.
    Like I said I'm calling the vet tomorrow, but is there anyone that can help me as well????

    Don't toss that poop, refrigerate it and take it with you.

    Also, vitamin sprays are useless.

    yes, a baggie will work, I myself was wondering how the snake was supposed to make use of the vitamin spray by spraying it on them, lol. You can get the snake a shot of vitamins at the vet.

    It sounds like she possibly has internal parasites. I would get her to the vet ASAP.

    I agree on both points! Vet visit!
    And vitamin sprays do nothing on an animal that is essentially armor plated!
    Please let us know how it goes!
