She’s got another respiratory infection, and it sounds like a bad one…she is wheezing very loudly (to the point where I have trouble sleeping). She’s not gaping, though, so I have some comfort.
(Gaping is where a snake sits with its mouth open…that means they’re REALLY having trouble breathing.)
Unfortunately neither of the reptile vets can see her until Wednesday morning…so I’ve turned up the heat in her cage, have started the ultrasonic humidifier going (it’s easier for her to breathe when the humidity is high…I think), and I may go out and get some sphagnum moss to put in her cage. Other than that there isn’t a whole lot I can do for her…just hoping I can get her to the vet in time.
I’m also worried that this means the Pseudomonas infection has become chronic, in which case she might need antibiotics indefinitely, but I’ll burn that bridge when I get there.
Meanwhile, it looks like my trip to Costa Rica is going up in smoke…if she’s sick, I’ll have to be around to give her injections.
Dangitall. (I hope she makes it through OK.)
