Nice write-up Mike. I realize most vets don't specialize in Herps, and many don't know what they are doing. It leaves us with quite a dilemma. Still, I would tend to get an opinion, and make a strong effort to find one locally that are recommended by herpers in your area. (Not you specifically, as I know you have those relations).

Regarding beneficial gut flora, how do you know what specific gut flora is relevant for HLs, and what role does it play in digestion? What you say seems to imply you know this. I have shied away from treating because I have always felt it was important not to disturb this balance, or at least keep it to a minimum.

Your nebulizer idea is pretty interesting. You use some kind of tent or something? In general baytril seems to be fairly harsh on the patient. Have you tried other antibiotics?
