Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I am a Vet Tech with over 40 years experience in Reptile Health and care.
I just viewed the picture. That may have been an abscess that opened and scabbed. Reptile abscesses are unlike human abscesses, as they are thick cheesey material rather than watery purulent liquid.
I have to auggest a Herp Vet visit to have the area looked at and if need be they can do a biopsy.
I would be happy to locate a Herp Vet for you if supply which country in the UK.
Please replt to discuss this and for a list of Herp Vets.
You are very welcome and the snake is beautiful/ I feel the best thing is to have the Herp Vet look rather than me trying to guss even if it is educated guess. If my answer has been helpful, please take a moment to rate my service positive.
