Ye thsts right,dont feed for 10 to 14 days n feed smaller food,,,check your temps are ok,,,too cold can be a cause,but also too hot can be a cause,,,,hope she gets well soon for you :wink:

Another thing you could do is get some grapefruit seed extract from a health shop,n put i little drop in her water,,this helps there stomachs recover.but make sure it is not too bitter,taste a little in a glass first then put it in for her.

Warm end should be 85F, maybe that's why it regurged.

Sometimes it just happens.

Try again in 10 days and I reckon you should be fine.

how old is the snake?

It takes a lot out of the snake and causes the snake to lose a lot of its digestive enzymes as well as contributing to dehydration.
This is why you need to wait to feed him again; if he doesn't have the stomach juices to digest well, he will likely regurge again.
