In Reply to: Albino tic with a tooth ache,.... advice? posted by BrianSmith on April 13, 2003 at 17:24:49:
It's sounds to me like a shed tooth, which happens often during feeding; especially if you feed live prey. Pythons loose teeth all the time, it's completely natural, and in time it will be replaced by a new one. So that's nothing to worry about; however, if you begin to see signs of infection, then start rinsing your snake's mouth with some diluted Nolvasan( 10 H20 : 1 Nolvasan)((it even comes pre-diluted at the vet)), or 1 part white vinegar to 1 part H20, or minimally diluted 1 H20 : 1 Hydrogen peroxide twice a day. Maybe even put a small dab of Sylvadine or Neosporin cream/ointment on the gum. You should see an immediate improvement, or at least it will keep the infection in check until you can see your vet, if you even have to. It may also be caused from your snake pushing and poking on the cage. Consider if your present cage is too small. Your retic may be trying to tell you it is cramped. Hope this gives you peace of mind. Good luck, Troy
