    Re: Tang's in trouble

    Just got back from the Vet's Office. On the way over Tang was in a death roll. He came out of it and by the time the Vet. saw him he only had small twitch. Dr. B. said there was probably some scarring taking place. He didn't think treating the pain chemically was the way to go. So, Tang is scheduled for a laser treatment on Tues. morning. Fingers crossed he'll get through this episode in his recovery. He's hanging in there.

    Re: Tang's in trouble

    I've just found a wild garter snake outside doing just that. It doesn't look wounded, but it is seemingly convulging in pain, twisting in circles around itself, lifting up its head and plopping it to the ground.

    So, I googled it, and here's the first (and only thing) that seems to match. I'm hoping there's something I can do help it. Any information would help, although it's sad to think that it's simply reaching the end of its life.

    Re: Tang's in trouble

    I just got home from the Vet's office. Tang got his first of 3 days in a row of treatments. They think the nerves are trying to reconnect and are firing randomly causing the twitches/contractions. I'm hoping this gives him some relief. They don't think putting him down should be an option at this point. I'm glad for that.

    Hi Erin, and welcome to the forum.
    I hope your post doesn't get lost in the middle of this thread.... perhaps you could start a whole new thread? So people don't miss your post.
    How's the snake you found doing?
    James.

    Nice to have you with us, Erin.

    Tang's current situation are related to his injury and recovery. My Vet. stated that his twitches and muscle contractions are generated at the injury site and not from the brain like some illnesses they can get. That is why he is alert and aware of what's going on. I wish you the best of luck with your snake and thank you for taking an interest in its life.
