Regurge Or Poo? I Know The Answer!

Regurge Or Poo? I Know The Answer!

So I found a petrified something in Maizey's cage this morning. It had that pinkish glow of a regurge, but I didn't want it to be that. I threw it in the trash. So I've been worrying all day (I swear that snake is going to die on me from regurging and there is nothing I can do...) and when I got home I dug it out of the trash. I'd had this revelation that if I melted it under running water, if it was a regurge, the skeleton would be revealed. And it was. So that's a way to tell.

Wow. That's gross, Nanci. But, I must admit, rather clever, and quite dedicated.

Sorry to hear about the regurge. That stinks.

I'd really hoped she'd stopped, after 4 or 5 very small meals. I guess not. There's nothing left to do except watch her shrink away to nothing eventually.

Aw, don't think that way Nanci! I'm sure she'll be fine.
With an owner like you, I don't see why she wouldn't be.

HE will be fine :-p

Toyah has a hoggie that was regurging every meal for months... Its doing ok now from what shes told me. Gaining weight etc.

You just need to keep trying... Maybe he has some sort of parasite again?

No, Maize got dewormed and had a clean fecal. The vet says there is stuff that can cause it- enlarged heart, diverticulosis, which is $$$ to diagnose, and then you can't do anything about it anyway. So she's (he's) been eating a 10 to 11 gram fuzzy every 5 days, which isn't enough, but doing ok, I thought...Till I found the regurge from who knows when this morning, and now Maize has refused to eat tonight. She'd (he'd) been so starving that she never refused...

That's too bad, Nanci. It doesn't sound like you have any choice but to stay your present course. Hopefully he won't waste away to the point where you'll have to euthanize him.

So sorry Nanci, nothing to say except fingers crossed Maize will start eating. susan
