Just got a message from vet. Sample was stained, but not tested for bacteria. Since all kinds of bacteria can be present, what exactly is there to isolate and identify? No lumps at all in body. Snake too small for intestinal biopsy. My bill has been up there and counting if all these tests need to be done.
Since no cure for crypto exists, things don't look promising for this girl.

Mike

P.S. Just curious how the heck does a snake get crypto in the first place? Food? Bad housekeeping? Or?
