Okay, your end doesn't seem so bad, but the fact that you've only had it for such a short time and it has been regurgitating since acqwuisition tells me it has a problem that came with it from the previous owner. The vet should do a standard mouth/throat swab, and a fecal exam. Then diagnose from what the findings are. Flagyl (Metronidazole) is for amoeba and many different intestinal bacteria, and Panacur (Fenbendazole) is for parasitic worms. This can be given at the same time too if needed. I would actually do both anyway regardless not knowing anything about the animals past. It really needs to have those two things done at the vets for sure. A fecal exam, and throat swab.

Flagyl: 50mg/kg body weight orally, repeat in 10-14 days

Panacur: 100 mg/kg body weight, repeat in 10-14 days


Keep in mind though, no food until at least 10 or more days AFTER the last treatment. Unless the snake is nothing but skin and bones, this is not a problem whatsoever with going without food for this short length of time, especially since food will kill it that much quicker anyway.

Purified or drinking water is fine, but definitely avoid distilled water at all costs. This will kill snakes.


best of luck, and keep us posted on how the snake does.
