    I have posted this on another forum and may post it on another since I am trying to gather a lot of opinions about this situation. I want to preface this by saying that I am not naming the breeders yet, after this is all over depending on the outcome I will ask them if it is okay to name them...

    Just recently got a Colombian Rainbow Boa. The first week or two she ate fine. However, she has refused to eat the past two weeks. Today I noticed this black spot on one side of her mouth. Could it be mouth rot? She's beginning to have her first shed too. Concerned about side. ^ Other side. ^...

    Does he just need to brush his teeth? My beardie recently had conjuncitivtis but has since recovered but when he was checked at the Vets they noticed he had small amounts of black on his teeth. The vet said that this is most likely tartar build up but I thought I would post it here anymore in...

    I have noticed that my juvenile stinkpot musk turtle's mouth looks to be eroding and is a strange shape. It is not symmetrical on each side and just doesn't look right. I will provide some photos but I suspect it is mouth rot and would like another opinion before I take him to the vet. He eats...

    My boa (female) managed to remove her rostral scale a few weeks ago by nose rubbing a vent. I took her to the herp vet the day she did it and have prevented her from continuing the behaviour. She has had a course of antibiotics, which I know is controversial. I have been cleaning her with...

    So today I finally got Oscar to the vets. Overall a positive experience. I was right with my suspicions, it is mouth rot, and it's in the early stages and very treatable. I decided to write up this little review for anyone wanting more information on how to treat it (though I do advise you...

    I have read other entries but I wondered if someone could help me with some advice. To start: I HAVE A VET APPOINTMENT. I am wanting to know if anyone has had their reptile treated by a vet and how much it cost? I'm a uni student and I don't have much money but I have booked him in with a vet...

    I've had my cornsnake for about 6 years, and have never experienced any problems with him, but I've noticed something on his lower jaw. It looks like either a scratch, or mouth rot. Here is a picture: I haven't fed him since I noticed it, but he ate regularly last time, and he's been acting...

    Hi, my 2 year old CWD has had a lump under the skin on the right side of his mouth for a while, it's brown and crusty as well. I clean it with iodine but it doesn't seem to be clearing up. It doesn't seem to hurt him when I touch or clean it. Do you think it needs vetinary attention? Thanks

    Background: I've had my BTS for about 10 years and it was fully grown when I got it from the pet-store because they had no home for her, and she had been returned there because the previous owners couldn't take care of her. I approximate her age to around 13-15 years old. Problem: I have, for...

    Hi, I have bought a baby bearded dragon and he has been fine, we've had him about 2 months. All of a sudden he's started rubbing his head/mouth on one side on his log and keeps opening his mouth scraping his tongue on that side of his mouth. We think it may be (stomatitis) mouth rot and he also...

    I recently purchased a rubber boa a few days ago and I believe it has mouth rot. The few days that I've had it is had been acting perfectly normal, but today it has been surfacing a few times and repeatedly opening and closing its mouth. I looked closely at the inside of its mouth and it looks...
