I have a hog island boa who is ill. The only reptile specialist I am aware of practices in Metaire. I live in Ponchatoula and would not be able to get their until Wednesday. I feel though it may be life and death that I get her to someone tomorrow. It seems as though she is having a gas buildup(maybe from an infection from a mice bite or something) in her mouth and is having trouble breathing and expelling the gas. From previous experience I know the vet bill will run around $400 dollars and I cannot afford that at this time in my life. As much as it would hurt me if anyone can help her I would be willing to meet you somewhere to pick her up. I don't want to give her to anyone who is not going to take great care of her for she is such a great pet. Please respond as soon as possible. Also do to the fact that I will be starting a new job and working long hours I must part with all of my cherished reptiles including a Dumeril Boa, Rosy Boa, and Blotched Kingsnake. All are in good condition and eat very well. I am just afraid I won't have the time to take proper care of them. Thanks,
Toni
