3 months ago I sold a young blood python to this girl(actually traded for a hognose) well she decided that she was afraid of her so I bought her back.I went and picked her up today and she is in really bad shape.Dehydrated, stuck shed and I think a respiratory infection.I soaked her good in 88 degree water.I got some of the shed off.I dont think she's been fed in the last three months either but maybe thats just the dehydration making her look so sunken in..
What else should I do?
Special temps or humidity?
If she does in fact have an RI I will get her to the vet next week but I need to be able to tell the vet what to do.So I need a walkthrough.We live in the country and although she is a good vet she does not deal with exotics.
What are the best antibiotics?
How do I give them, etc, etc???
Thanks so much..
