Does anyone here do their own? I just got all the supplies to start except a decent microscope which will be coming shortly.

I was just wondering if anyone does their own.

And for those that don't, what's your usual health check consist of?

I generally visually check the snake for external parasites and feel along the length of the snake for masses. I listen for wheezing during respiration and watch their stools. Unless something stands out with those checks I usually think all is well.
