    Re: Rescued burm need some advice

    I agree with Momokahn about the importance of extra hydration by injecting water or Pedialyte. Severely dehydrated snakes cannot digest until they are rehydrated,
    and the last thing a snake in this condition needs is to regurge a meal...even a small one.

    In rescues like this, I would also inject some reptile vitamin/mineral powder too, or else pack a little of the powder into the rodents mouth...that way you don't need
    to use a syringe or try to dissolve it so it doesn't clog the needle. (if you go the injection route, get liquid vitamins)

    How is it going so far?

    Re: Rescued burm need some advice

    Soooooo given this beautiful little snake is so dehydrated I'd be tempted to give it a 30 minute soak ??

    I've only had a quick look through all the replies and nobody seems to have mentioned it . I've taken over a couple of dehydrated snakes over the years and a soak makes an massive difference.. immediately afterwards they look much plumper and seem more 'alive' .

    Any thoughts ??

    Apologies if I've missed something.

    Re: Rescued burm need some advice

    Snake is doing good! I got rid of the mites but I'm gonna treat her one more time just to be safe. I gave her a rat pup 6days ago I believe and she ate that, plus I've been giving her fresh water and just letter her be for the most part. I have a good feeling she'll manage to make a full recovery without any problems. She was definitely starved of food/water and in a enclosure way to big.

    I totally agree, thanks! I meant to suggest that as well- (I got sidetracked somewhere?) Not to mention that it helps by drowning any missed mites.

    Forgot to get more pics of the little girl but I did get this one. If you compare it to the first couple picks there is already a big difference in how she looks.

    "No good deed goes unpunished..." or so they say? I hope she'll settle down, that's no way to say "thanks!"
    She's GOT to be feeling good, she looks SO much better already.
