    Re: Ooohh...that looks strange =(

    What I am curious of is how they determined the worm infection and what kind of worminfection is it?
    Is it a worminfection in the bowls or under the skin?
    What is the treatment?
    Why does the snake has to stay for a month at the vetīs clinic?
    What is going to be done with 50 syringes?

    I know... questions, questions, questions.

    I know... questions, questions, questions.
    So I was asked about the diet of the snake, and appears to be very common in those kinds of fish to have parasites
    (But then...how all the pet stores sell this kind of fish for food? That's so dishonest ), so he told me that he have seen something like that and the snake had the same diet.

    The treatment, was surgery to extract the worm, the ones that grow under the skin like you said (dracunculus medinensis) BUT, he only saw her, nothing more, so he could be wrong...and some antibiotics (he didn't say wich ones, tomorrow I'll ask him) by the way, not the nicest person I've ever met .Imagine that professor that thinks he knows everything, and tries to make you feel bad or make a fool out of you. I was so angry, I'm paying, They're not making me any favor. And I'm not in there for someone to tell me how I need to grab my snake (like a small child) and tell me things I already knew, just because I didn't study Biology. At that moment I was saying in my head "And that's why other cultures don't like mexicans...For just a few, we get labeled".

    And the reason about the time she's gonna stay there is because, he said that reptiles take too much time to heal, I don't know if it's true, I've never had a sick snake =(

    The 50 syringes..Ohhh, that's because it was a service to the University like "charity", I did pay for everything (And it wasn't cheap) , but suddenly it was a sort of requirement not charity or something...Can u believe that!!!

    But unfortunately there are not many reptile vets. So whatever at this moment is good. =(

    I say it again...only in Mexico!

    Oh...I'm really sad about it, and that's me...really-->

    I don't think he's gonna give all the babies, I'm pretty sure he's going to steal a few for the University, I don't trust him, I'm also thinking, about picking her up in a week or two, but I'm also afaid that she still needs some treatment.



    Thank you all for your support

    wow
    I guess you're really at their mercy for treatment, so they can make the rules
    I'd be fuming - and even worse because of the need to be diplomatic
    what can you do
    at least she does get treatment
    thanks for taking care of your snake despite these difficulties and expense

    someone posted a couple of months ago about a gravid snake with a worm
    there were autopsy photos because for that snake it was too late
    will try to find the thread

    Wel I just Exploded today....

    I took my snake and my money back, the guy has no education...I'll take her to a better place with people who do have education and care for animals.

    So I arrived and nobody answered the door so I came in, the guy didn't say anything so I asked him...What was it?...the response was "Oh, I'm going to open her" , as you can imagine, the snake was lef 24 hrs, and then he started to check some papers while me and my sister where standing there like trees for half an hour, so...I found another teacher (very kind woman) and told him that we where really upset. So the guy kang out the phone and he asked: "Bad treat from whom?"...I just said FROM YOU!!! wive me my snake, the syringes and my money cause you didn't do anything to her...she could die and you just leave her.

    So in less than a minute I had the snake and all my money...I'm gonna talk to the chief of the area, tomorrow...this can't stay like this, people like him sould not be assigned to the public.

    Yeah, I know that type. They don't give a crap about the client (or patient) and they can be really condescending. Sometimes you just have to "explode".

    Good for you, Robert. You kind let these self opinionated types push you around.

    Re: Ooohh...that looks strange =(

    What a story. Thanks for sharing.

    Try to get some faeces from the snake and take this to a "normal" vet. Eventhough this one might have no reptile experience, mostly they can determine worm(-eggs) in the faeces.

    But if the snake only has a bump and does not look ill and acts normal you might consider to just leave her alone.
    She can give birth to her young in peace than.
    All this vet-trouble gives her a lot of stress, I guess.

    Re: Ooohh...that looks strange =(

    Can you shed more light as to what kind of worm and where it was? Was it subcutaneous, intracardiac, in the lung, in the coleom? Did they tell you the genus, species or even just the family of worm?

    Thanks, and I'm happy you were able to find someone to attend to your snake
