Appreciate your input, but the vet never told me how extensive the tests were. The vet used in nyc works at the bronx zoo and specializes in herps ( and exotics) along with another vet there. In the beginning a cloacal wash was done, since no fecal specimen was available. He found only inflammation, and no swelling. With the feces and upchuck sample he had more to work with. He's out of town and won't be back till next week. I keep in touch with e-mail, but will send him your comments. Maybe he'll be more definitive with me.

I haven't been to a "reptile" vet in over 12 years before this vet at the animal medical center. My batting average has been zero, meaning the snake died within 2 months. Mostly egg bound problems, which I haven't had for a long time.

Will post anything new soon.

Mike
