alright so my big normal is going in to her pre-lay shed so she's been soaking. i noticed she had dunked her head under water a couple of times. she's rather swollen in the neck, i felt it just feels like water anmd it didnt even seem to bother her with me touching it. the top of her head is swelled up to her teeth are kind of overlapping the bottom jaw. i have 2 pics that show this rly well. amny thoughts on what i can do for now, ill bring her to a vet if need be and either way will. just some thoughts on what i can do for now. thanks a bunch
thanks rich, that's what im thinking too there no bubbling and like i said i saw her dunk her head into the water a few times, she a skiddish one :S
it does feel like a bunch of retained water its rather squishy.
so far the vets I called are closed bleh. i took her water out she'll be quite warm so ill keep an eye on it till i can get her to a vet. I'll keep everyone posted, she's the toughest gal i have she'll pull through im sure.
I have a Burmese python that ended up like this after his shed. His face and throat was swollen. I put him in the tub of warm water and let him exercise and it went right down. I posted it online like you and a well known breeder said its a gland that swells up sometimes. Hopes it goes down. Keep us posted.
