I think something like that would be great.
The only board certified exotic vet we have in Indiana is in Indianapolis, which is a 2.5 hour drive for me. Not very great considering my fiancé works nights during the week and it’s pretty much impossible to get days off.
We have a couple vets that work with exotic animals that are more local, but they don’t quite seem to know what they’re talking about nor do they listen to me. They’ve also treated me like I didn’t know jack about my ball pythons.
My poor girl Butters still has her abscess, even though it was removed by the vet in Indianapolis I guess they didn’t get all of it so it came back. Though they did test it for microbes and didn’t find anything unusual, so it’s not infectious.
I’m not sure if it’s something I should take her in for again or just let it be.
It doesn’t seem to bother her in any way, as she still hits food hard and drinks normally, but she just looks weird with her jaw looking almost the same thickness as her head.
