Good question Kelly. This snake was treated with NIX cream in a gallon of water shortly prior to onset of problems about 3 months ago. the snake and enclosure were sprayed down and allowed to dry before replaced in tank with water being removed for 36 hrs. The treatment was repeated after 5 days.

I am glad you picked up on that. I didn't add it in the 1st listing as I was looking for insight into symptoms without giving an obvious target---you obviously have insight.

I have been unable to find information as to what to expect in the progression of a possible toxicity. Most of what I read on neurotoxicity describes abnormal movements and a starry gaze and are also described as acute symptoms. I did read your post on nephrotoxicity which seems closer to what I am experiencing. Refresher of sings-->lethargy, anorexia, muscle weakness and decreased responsiveness; drinking, breathing and tongue flicking are normal.

You must have something in mind, and I would be very happy to read what that is.

You helped me get an anaconda feeding last year, he is doing great.

I appreciate you input, and look forward to a reply.

Thank you!
