snake x ray


Diarmuid passed a stone a little over a week ago, I brought him to the vet to get it checked out. The doctor believes it may be from dehydration during shedding. So she recommended misting more than usual during shed and we took an x-ray to make sure there were no more inside of him. Thankfully he was all clear! But if it happens again we’ll have to send it in for testing.

Very neat experience for me though, first time having one of my snakes x-rayed!

EDIT: The tags are purely meant for people searching those particular snakes and not meant as an accurate identification. In fact, Tumblr user YouTaggedThatSnakeWrong added that the xray is of a pit viper.
