 Help my boa is sick

I have 2 boas n I think my male is sick he as just finished his 1st shed with me n it went fine no problems at all. He shed over his feed day so I waited till a day after he finished shedding he took his food perfectly normal so I thought no more of it. The next day me n my partner went out for the day n when we got back my partner noticed that he had regurgitated he is 5month old so hes on baby rats. He isnt his self he is just not moving n also it sounds a bit mad but his head seems stuck in 1place.. Can anyone help me im really worried about him, thanx

Hi, I’m currently working through boa issues too, but I’ve got uri troubles. Are your temps and humidity stable? I’ve found some boas need a week after shedding before a feed. Did you make sure all of the shed was off? As far as the regurg, just give him a week to 10 days and try again.

You need to look into a condition called RBD. I heard one of the symptoms is the stiff neck. I believe it can be fatal to your snake, please look into it, Google it. I really hope your snake feels better. Good luck to you.

I replied earlier to your message about your sick Boa and i have u the wrong information, you need to lookup IBD, not RBD. I apologize for the misspell.
