Whiskey, I think it's safe to say, will be ok. She still needs a trip to the vet, but she's so much more active now. I feel much better about her, and she hasn't done anymore weird crazy movements that look like she's dying since the other night when she got here as well, so that's a good sign. It's hard to explain what she was doing ... But I could tell she was dying. She MAYBE could have lasted another week away from me .... MAYBE .... Maybe more like a couple days ....

Oh no! I am sorry to hear about Sangria. I am glad that Whiskey seems okay though. Man, it sounds like they got it bad!
I will count myself lucky the next time (crosses fingers) Lucy gets them.

I noticed them on my Columbian Rainbow and ordered some of the prevent a mite spray. Treating everyone not just the boa. It's suppose to be good for awhile after spraying the cage and everything in it, hide, paper, lid. I'll see shortly only been a few days.

Thank you everyone for all your tips and advice. He still hasn't eaten but definitely the weather could have something to do with it. We'll take him out for a bathe again today. Since his last bath he has hid under the white towel we had in the bottom of his home. I'm guessing he wants some quiet time to himself. A friend of mine took her snake to the vet and the vet advised her to put the snake in a bag with a feed to encourage eating, we haven't got to that stage yet. I'm sure he has lost weight but i'm hoping he has enough reserves.

Sorry to hear of your loss Lovesnuffles, i know we would be shattered to lose our pets. We also have a blue tongue lizard we have had for 6 years, he is in a separate part of the house so has had no exposure to the dastardly mites. Thank you again for everyones feedback we'll keep all updated. When is a good time to take to the vet as well?

Super news, Hector has had a beautiful shed, and possibly eaten, he's hiding now and i know there was a rat in his house yesterday so i'm pretty sure it's gone. After treating the mites many times, mainly without chemicals, we used mite spray in the enclosure but not alot, mainly heat and clean every 2-3 days, and bathing Hector and soaking him in warm water. I don't trust the pests so we'll keep up the maintanance for another week or 2. We got him a big new heat rock and boy he loved it. I'm pretty sure the cold was really disturbing him. Yesterday trying to get him out so i could put the rock in boy was he feisty, tried to strike me twice, so i figured he was hungry but had no idea he would shed so i offered him food. He didn't take it off my tongues but i thought i'd just rest the rats head a little on the heat rock to keep warmth in it and see if he would have a go. The rat is no longer there!! Fingers crossed he ate it. Hector still has no bedding so to speak just a plain white sheet to see of any possible mites and Hector is under there now, i'll have a look tomorrow. I'll definitely be back here, you guys were great.
