    Yeah and if you're worried about building her up slowly, you can offer small-ish small rats (about 50 grams), then one around 60 grams next time, etc. Same for mediums, they can vary in size so start with feeders around 85-90 grams and build up to the heavier ones.

    Boas are pretty tough and she'll likely bounce back from this just fine with some TLC. Good job with the rescue. :D

    Sorry no photos yet. Just wanted her to get safely back in her hide after being stressed.

    bcr229 this is similar to what the vet recommended. Next feeding will be Sunday and a small rat around 50-60g and then a 6-8 days later slightly larger. She did well for handling and am so amazed at how well she is healing. When she shed at the vets office was almost a complete shed. Surprised me because of her burns but guessing she was already healing. My guess is the heat pad over heated and then burned itself out and she was on top of the spot when it did. No attitude while handling. Just mellow and wanting to be left alone. Cant blame her. Photos will have to wait. She is drinking water and seams to be drinking lots of it. Guessing she was without water quite often. She did pass poop and urinates the other day so everything is working as it should there. Going to take it slow. I want her well now! LOL but takes time. Loving her already. Should be ready to rehome by February is all goes well and I don't get to attached. She gets 3 more shots over the next week or 2. Under the vets supervision, I gave her the last one. Was so nervous. My hands were shaking. LOL. Cant wait to show up and see the guy get prosecuted for his treatment of his animals.

    So true. Just don't want to many and having room for a rescue is always good. If I rehome her to a good home, I can rescue another. Do it with dogs all the time. One of my dog rescues went from severe neglect and living in a 8 x 10 kennel for 4 years to becoming a seizure therapy dog for an autistics kid. Now they are taking care of each other. Love it when that happens.


    She was hunting again today. Don't want to over feed though. Might do a small rat Sunday to work her up a little. Vet still wants her to ease up because her insides might be shrunk and her burns healing. Saturday is third shot for her. She is doing well for the condition she is in.

    She is getting another shot of antibiotics today. She was hunting again last night. Her temps and humidity are spot on. upgrading her hide so she fits all the way in instead of hanging out of it. She seams to be recovering nicely. She is very active sometimes and calm others. I might put her in a larger enclosure than the one she is in. She is in a 2*1.5*1.5 Might be a little small for her.

    She is doing much better and active between feedings. Easy to handle. She is awesome. Her belly is healing nicely also. A few more feedings and she will be back on track. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...104ae169d4.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6bdc13a613.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...762a81849f.jpg

    She looks great, nice work. Sounds like she is much happier and definitely healthier.
