Reptiles + Diagnosis

  • Anorexia is a common problem in snakes but it is not a single disease – it is a sign brought on by many different causes.

  • Common conditions of pet snakes include stomatitis (mouth rot), parasites, respiratory disease, difficulty shedding, and septicaemia.

  • All reptiles grow by shedding their skins periodically. Dysecdysis describes the failure to shed skin properly.
