So sorry to hear that Charlie. It sounds like it was the best thing in the end but that doesnt make it easier to bear. Hugs

Sorry to hear that, however, they should have done tests first, how do they know it wasn't crypto? How do they know it wasn't recoverable? They cannot, simply cannot make a judgement without backing it up, that's why vet labs exist.
Don't get me wrong, I am sorry that its got so bad.
They need to do a pm, you need to know what was wrong with it, for the sake of your other animals, putting an animal down because it looks bad is not good enough.

Hi guys in reply to Mikes text the vet said they were quite happy to start treatment afterall its me thats paying, but in their opinion the chance of recovery was nil,and it would have caused more stress to the animal.Like most people you trust their judgement,I trust my GP,its very hard to argue with my sort of knowledge.But they are doing a autopsy so we might find out what happened.
Best wishes Charlie

Which Vet is it you use? its a hard choice to make, but tests should been done first, animals have come back from similar conditions, sometimes even really bad burns. We have a gecko that had worms, we didnt know at the time, she lost loads of weight, and was pretty much near on dying, she weighed something like 20g as an adult, she never was big, and fully recovered now, she only weighs about 40g. It is possible though.

Hi Guys sorry for the long delay in replying,I upgraded to windows 7 and nothing worked for ages.In reply to Mike , Iam with Sears Vets near Crawley,and their Senior Partner specialises in exotic reptiles.They have a good name,and their advice was always good.Maybe part of the disaster was that I did not spot the problem quick enough,who knows.It is difficult to not agree with a vet.
Best wishes and many thanks for all your help.

I have just found out my male snake has Crypto and am hearbroken but I mated him with my female Pewter. I am so worried that she will get it but will it affect the eggs that she laid.
