Question 4 mice in a row???!!?

could it harm my bp if I give it 4 mice in one day?? I did it last monday and he did fine ( except that he poops almost each day lol ;P)..By this i mean, could he have health problems if I do this kind of feeding method until I get rats (in about 3 to 4 weeks.) Im about to give him his fourth one so quick answer plz Thx a lot

BTW : he is almost 3 feet

I think 4 mice in a row (on the same feeding) is not a problem since mice are not that big .. although feeding him too often can be an issue..

If you are going to be feeding him a big meal like that .. i would give him a good 7 ot 14 day interval between each feeding. If you say he has been going to the washroom everyday than obviously that is not what you are doing .. I strongly advise against feeding him very frequently .. the main problem is that you are putting undigested food (the mice just eaten) in his stomach with partially digested food .. An sanke in the wild does not always have a full stomach ..

What kinda outcome can this have on a snake .. hmm .. I'm not sure excacly but I am sure someone else in these forums will be able to answer that. I can garantee you its not a good thing though

Just my opinion

Actually, I give him all the mice in the same day..
first one-8am
second one-12
third one-15pm
fourth one- im about to give it now :P :grab:
last feeding I stretched the schedule on two days(maybe thats the reason) because I dont want to stress too much the little guy
for the size: he is nearly 3 feet, fat but not as much as the ones I see on the net (still fat)

You can feed multiple mice at one sitting with no problem. I have a male ball that's about 4 feet long. He gets 2-3 large mice, occassionally 4 if one of the other mouse eatters doesn't finish theirs, per feeding. Once one mouse is swallowed I place the next one in the enclosure. It doesn't stress them to eat their prey at one sitting. Also, after they have eatten, it is best to allow them to digest and not handle them for a day or two. With feeding them at one time, you are not stretching the feedings out and they can digest in peace before being handled.
