 My snake spewed up worms

i own a carpet python in New South Wales Austrailia. He had not been fed for a while due to cold weather. I have just fed him a rat and noticed he had a little bit of red discolouration around his neck. after he had fed about 3 hours later he vomited up red worms which were still alive. can anyone please help with info about seriousness of problem and treatment.
thanks kindly

Parasitic worms. Take it to the vet!

What he said. The vet will give it medication to kill and expel the worms. If its regurged some with a meal, that means its pretty far advanced. They will take all the nutrition and kill the snake if not treated.
