Someone was kind enough to drop off a 7 ft Burmese on my doorstep a few nights ago.
It has a pretty severe respiratory infection.
It is currently in an isolation tank away from my other herps.

What should I do to help with the infection?

Current Humidity 65-75%
Current Day Temp 85 degrees
Current Night Temp 75 degrees

Will Take to the vet on Friday if there are no signs of improvement.

your temps are really to low and they dont need a day night cycle... best kept up about 90 - 92 and a trip to the vet :2thumb:

Try go warmer then 92.
And spray f10 disinfectant souloution regularly in tank/rub and allow to steam. Do not keep to moist. Just little and often to help kill bacteria and so the snake can inhale.

Head to the vets ASAP.
Fortum. Or amickacin. Home remedies are pants!
Best bet antibiotics from a vet.
