I have a female burmese that has not eaten in a month.I brought it to my local herp shop,and he said that she should be.She does not have a cold or any weasing.
There are no mites.The temp is 85.I have been feeding her frozen rats.She is
6 ft long.I am stumped and worried.Any and all help please.PICO
A month is nothing. Even with the temp at 85, I think they can sense weather conditions outside. Most of my Boas and Pythons go off feed this time of year for awhile. No worries unless she starts losing a lot of weight. Just keep offering food on your usual schedule..she will eat soon. Of course be sure to keep fresh water available at all times as well.

I have a female burmese that has not eaten in a month.

She's probably not hungry. Hell, I only feed my male Boa constrictor just over once a month anyway, and he often refuses meals.

Give her a couple of weeks, and then offer her another meal.

My boa would probably eat every day if I would just offer it to her. So I feed her largish meals anywhere from three weeks to two months apart, but usually about a month. She does great.

A month without eating is nothing to a snake. She'll eat again when she's good and ready.
Snakes aren't like mammals, they can go long periods without food
My vet said snakes can go for long periods without eating(meaning they can survive) but it doesn't mean it's healthy for all snakes. They can develop "fatty liver disease" just like the family cat from not eating for prolonged periods. He said that in the wild, a snake doesn't sit around digesting a meal till it's long gone before they go out and look for more food. It's a good idea to offer a reasonable amount of food at intervals that are not too far apart.
How do you know if it's got liver problems? Not sure other than a necropsy (autopsy). I suppose a blood test might indicate if there were problems. Just keep offering food and fresh water and watch the weight for signs of trouble.
