A couple of things, first is humidity, room humidity can be really low this time of year, I know it adversely effects my hogs more then some other species.

And, did you try live, scenting, etc. Sometimes, they respond to other items, then return to normal. If your call it training to get one to take Ft mice, you may want to retrain it.

Lastly, temporarily going off food is not normally a problem. But only you can determine the future. If it continues and you try to adjust your husbandry and that fails, take your snake to a vet. One of the very most common problems with snakes is Flagellate protozoans, They are a stress related pathogen. and they without question effect feeding. If your animal had a stressful winter, then they can bloom and cause problems. Its an easy cure, take the stress away and have your snake treated. Hopefully your hog is already feeding and theres no problem.
