I fully agree with the others. Repeated feedings only make things FAR WORSE!. The first thing you MUST do is diagnose the problem that is causing the snake to regurgitate!. It is likely a stomach infection caused by microbial pathogens, but you need to get it looked at by a qualified vet first off. Among the other things they will do that was also mentioned is do a throat/mouth smear and a fecal floatation. I am betting it would do wonders if given a two-dose regimen of Flagyl (Metronidazole) at the rate of 50mg/kg of body weight and NOT attempt any feeding until 10-14 days AFTER the last dosing. And then the meals should be very small for a while after to make darn sure it won't regurge again from it's poor system being so taxed.

Eight regurges is extremely serious and very life-threatening, and it needs to see a vet for immediate medical attention or it won't have even the smallest chance of surviving....I guarantee it.

Hope the poor snake pulls through!
