    My 5 year old corn snake has had a respiratory infection for around a month. She showed very mild symptoms and was put on a course of fortum. This hasn't had any effect and she has gotten worse, before she only had a small short sniffle noise that she made around once a day) where as now she was...

I have been giving the injections at home and I noticed around 40 minutes after giving the injection she started biting around the site of injection. I immediately intervened and phoned the vet. They said not to be...

    Hi, this is my first post here so go easy on me :blush: I've had a corn snake for around 4 years, admittedly it was somewhat neglected for 3.5 of those years. I always fed it but didn't use a thermostat or thermometer and almost never cleaned it out. However, having quit weed for the past 6...

    Hi, is it worth feeding a snake on antibiotics or could the stress cause a regurge? I'm probably worrying about nothing, he's a royal so can survive a missed feed easy - he's just so little :blush:

    Turns out one of my snakes have R.I so I took it to the vet today after doing research. They are saying he needs injections and some stuff to breathe in. So before I go and buy a nebuliser does this sound right? The injections are what I am seriously questioning as I haven't heard of that...

    Would a royal having a cold end of about 17-20'c cause an R.I? (for 2-3 weeks) About a month ago we where having issues with the central heating causing the room the snakes are in to drop to around these temps, the past couple of weeks I have heard my 2010 royal whistling with almost each...

    It seems I will be using this method for the first time tomorrow, I was just wondering about the VIC. Is this the Vicks vapor rub you get from stores, or a separate product made of different ingredients? If it is a different product could anybody suggest a likely place to find it as I have only...
