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.
If you think your pet is unwell, you must take it to your veterinarian for prompt attention. ANY deviation from normal should be a cause for concern and requires immediate evaluation by your veterinarian.
All reptiles grow by shedding their skins periodically. Dysecdysis describes the failure to shed skin properly.
