Quite how a remote appointment will work is beyond me. If a prescription is needed, how do you get it??
And let's say injections are needed. A vet will need to show you what to do. A bit difficult if the snake isn't witb the vet!
And then there is a similar post today from the OP in the lizard section

Either the OP is having some really bad kama or Ian's suspicions may be right. But to give some credit they have 89 posts so it's not following the normal Friday night one poste wonder

This worried me though - posted in May

I went to A&E and they were useless as know one knew anything about it so im relying on you guys really XD

Cheers, All answers appreciated!
If I lived in a really remote village I wouldn't want to have something that could put me at risk, especially if the nearest A&E was some time away

This also begs the question, with both a Boa and lizard having health problems at the same time, either the husbandry is up the poo or is there any chance of cross contamination caused through poor hygiene like not washing hands between handling
