    Re: Sick, fat, smelly garter snake, advice??

    Yikes... poor thing... please do keep us updated on her condition. I'd love to hear what the vet says if you end up taking her in. Good luck...

    Oh. Because you know, it seems to me that, aside
    from being a little mentally ill, she's pretty normal.

    Doesn't look good at all. Too far gone I would say, but can't hurt to try.

    Hey guys, thank you so much for all of the quick responses, we didn't make it to the vet, she died just a little while after i'd written that post. We were gutted. We've kept snakes for a very long time and nothing like this has ever happened before and feel aweful about it. our surviving little guy is still going strong and we're keeping an eye on him, with a heavy lesson learned.

    Lisa,
    I'm very sorry to hear about your snake's passing. It's always a hard thing since that connection they make with us is so strong.
    It's the lessons we learn that help us do a better job with their needs. After a long time of keeping Garters I'm still learning from them.
    Once again, sorry for your loss.
