Joe has a Green Tree Python named Sunshine, as beautiful a snake as you have ever seen.
Unfortunately, Sunshine has a wound in her mouth that is not healing well and she is not eating. This is a dilemma.
It is difficult to evaluate the organs of a snake. Blood tests tell us there is an abnormality or some sort of inflammation, but up until now it is not obvious as to what it is. Even listening to Sunshine’s heart is a trick.She normally has a very slow heart rate and she is so active and she won’t hold still so that it makes hearing the heart somewhat difficult.
We will be taking x-rays and supporting her, which means making sure that we force feed her, gently of course, and see if she responds to treatment and the medicine she is also getting.
