I disagree with the pet shop guys. Yes, I'd raise the temps for him, But it sounds as though he's getting dehydrated. I think that you also need to raise the humidity for his shed.
You really ought to take him to the vet. If he has a respritory infection, that can be rather serious, and should have proper treatment, before it progresses too far. Often times, by the time they are showing symptoms, it has really progressed. Trust me on this one, it's not worth waiting to find out if it will "go away on it's own."
Anyway,when you get a new snake, it's not a bad idea to take him to the vet for an initial checkup. This gives you a chnce to get to know your vet before you need him in the middle of the night, and gives the vet a chance to get to know your snake.
Can you let us know what kind of setup you have him in? Size of enclosure, heat source, hides, temps-hot side and cool, and humidity, etc......


:I called local pet store and he said to raise the temp in the cage to 90 to 95 and take out the water dish to fix the resp. tract infection. Today I ntoiced that his eyes look like they are cracked. they are grey so i think he is abou tot shed. Is that normal for them to crack. I thought that I read somewhere taht it will heal itself. i just want to make sure.

:thanks, andrew
