These two new boas have been nothing but a pain. I aquired two female boas on a trip to Florida. Get them back home only ot realize they are covered in mites. treat them with PAM and reptilerelief for the last month, finally think i have those gone... for regualar feeding day 1/20, i defrost my small full grown mice. My DH snow snapped at it immediately. However, in the process i think she got a tooth stuck in the jaw of the mouse, it took her 2 hours and she didn't eat it. You could tell she was stuck i looked at it carefully and finally it got released. I put her back in her cage and left her be for a couple days, checking on her to make sure nothing crazy happened. Well, the last two days she is showing inflammation of the lower jaws.I'm assuming this is an infection from her breaking a tooth?/having some puncture something in her mouth? My questions are is it mouth rot? is there a way to treat it at home without stacking up a big vet bill? i already have a couple hundred bucks in bill from a sick argentine tegu. I saw online a thing called rot guard? Does this work? it only cost $6 bucks so i'm doubting, is there any other antibiotics i could obtain and administer myself? Thanks.
