corn snake wont eat after mouth rot
hi there,right here goes,i responded to a advert on the internet about a adult amel corn snake,i arranged to pick him up and the day before i was due to collect they txt me and said "they fed it the night before and now its got something wrong with its mouth"they said they were treating it with dilute TCP:gasp: so i said id have alook.i got there and one side of his lower jaw looked like it had'nt re aligned propely,anyway i took him home got a friend to check him and she quickly bathed it with iodine(dilute) i carried this on at home and booked him into the vets,they told me to carry on and also gave me some baytril,now 3 weeks on his mouth has healed and he has got more lively but he is still refusing to eat ive offered him smaller mice but still no interest.any advice would be great please:2thumb:

My oh had a baby corn (3 months) who refused continually, the only way she would feed was if i split a pinky in half and fed it to her 1 half at a time. did this for 2 feeds, then left one in the rub with her overnight so she had a little privacy and she ate it fine. never had any probs since. as far as the mouthrot goes, i have no experience of that, so sorry i cant be more help.

Hope that is of some use to you, or someone with more experience advises.

Good luck!
