I work at a nature center and we are currently housing a northern racer that was caught in garden fencing. It did have major cut injuries from being caught in the fencing, but they are closed up and we are waiting for a shed to see how they've healed underneath. It had no problem eating live mice, but it has gone off feed for the past 2 months and is starting to look very skinny. Since then it has also started moving in a jolty manner and almost seems disoriented. We've had racers before that never exhibited this. We talked to a local reptile vet that isn't quite sure what it could be. An infection from the injuries? A problem from it not eating?

Any advice?
