In your first post you said that you disinfected the racks. What did you use?

The reason I ask is because a few months ago I had a similar situation, but involving two Burmese Pythons. One appeared to have a slight response to Baytril injections but the other one didn't. I scrubbed the cage and did everything imaginable but their condition wasn't improving enough for me. Very seldom have I had to resort to antibiotics to get rid of an RI, but something was obviously different this time.

I placed them in other cages and within a few days I saw improvements. Not long afterward one got sick again. Yes, back in the original cage. Took me a few months of re-tracing my steps, over & over, before I finally hit upon a possible cause.

The month of August was unusually dry here and I also increased the ventilation holes in that cage and failed to monitor the humidity level within it. That's also about the time I switched from cleaning my cages with a bleach solution to using Nolvasan.

When the timing of it all dawned on me I read the label on the bottle of Nolvasan. What does it say? "Not effective against Pseudomonas aeruginosa ....."

However, I didn't have any issues with them losing scales like you. I don't know what to make of that.

I wish you all the best!
