    I am so annoyed, I have just bought a pair of hognoses, got them home and upon transferring them to their new rubs noticed one has a slight wheeze. I actually tried to listen to their breathing before buying them but as luck would have it could hear nothing untoward at the time. I have messaged...

    I have a new ball python that I received 5 days ago. now it's a adult male around 1320g, and the first time I held it it kind of hissed at me, then the hissing got quiter and quiter and turned to a slight whistling, only when I was handling him as if he was stressed and wanted to get away, it...

    About two weeks ago, my ball python shed his skin, and it was after this that I noticed him wheezing. I've read that this could be due to a bit of shed skin in their nose, otherwise maybe a respiratory infection. Since the wheezing began, he has been acting normal, eaten twice and does not seem...

    Hi, so on Friday I got two new BCI's, both females. One's quite big and the other's quite small and skinny. That should be easy to overcome because she seemed eager to feed when I got her home. But the trouble is I think she has a retained eye cap and a mild RI. Her left eye is cloudy, almost...

    So I was just handling my Jungle Carpet and noticed what can only be described as a fairly quiet 'clicking' sound occasionally emanating for somewhere around his throat. I can only hear it when handling him, although I doubt he'd appreciate my ear in his face whilst he's in his viv doing...

    Hi all a few months ago had a problem with my hermanns who seemed to have a slight wheeze, their was no discharge or bubbling but we promptly took her to the vets who said it was more than likely a upper respitaory problem caused by the dust from her substrate (sand/topsoil) so we swiftly...

    I posted a thread before asking advice on how to remove odd patches of shed as my Royal shed in once piece, including the eyecaps and tail, but there were still little "areas" left over. I was advised to let him soak for a while and then try and gently rub it off. Which I tried... and it went...
