Re: BRB Losing Scales?

Before I make any decisions to take him to the vet, I'll wait on some experienced breeders. Cliff/Snakesitter is the only one I know of here, so I'll wait for his verdict on this thread, and see if anybody else thinks that could be the case.

I am very hesitant to take him to the vet without some concrete opinions because of his condition. I do not want to risk a vet visit pushing him over the edge. If he was a normal BRB in generally good condition that would be one thing, but he isn't. Of course, my natural response is to consult a vet, but vet visits are stressful, and he is most likely weak from having to eat significantly small meals for the 14 months of his life thus far.
