I am lucky to have good relationships with many local vets (have my aas in veterinary technology, but was laid off-as many of us have in these hard times) if I found myself in this situation, I would get a vet to run a fecal and be SURE what type of parasite I was dealing with, and get a dewormer from the vet, I know we did this with cats/dogs (w/o an office visit) all the time b/c so many dewormers can be bought over the counter, but I trust stuff from a vet more then a pet shop.
some vets may require an office visit to watch their own behinds, but thats what the phone is for, call around.
as for the snake itself, double, then triple check your husbandry, a parasite in an otherwise healthy animal can be bad, but if there is anything else wrong it can be DEVASTATING
on a personal note, I would contact the breeder, and I don't want to sound like a mom, but "if ya can't afford the vet, ya cant afford the pet" But as you seem that you are VERY dedicated to breeding, best of luck!
