can snakes get scale rot from being on oil?
Aye it should never be used to just to treat the snake and shove it back in the viv, it may not be a chemical but due care and attention are needed as always or it could cause problems.i've also seen it do some pretty masty things like dehydration and causing bad sheds.
Same here, I would never advocate the use of oil.equally they would have been sorted quickly if you had just used frontline and water exclusively.
Dave is right, the natural solution does work well. it's worked absolutely fine with us in then past.
I personally will NEVER recommend anyone put oil on a snake.
yep got a couple of squirts in the mouth too (dirty...eww)hahaha
It also tastes flipping rank too!
oil DOES work though its just not practical...especially if you have multiple animals like many of us do. the more efficient and easiest way imo is frontline...though atm i have preventative mite bird tray thingies fixed on the outside of all vivs (that i got when i was back in the states) that seem to be working a treat.Same here, I would never advocate the use of oil.
Try Frontline if that doesn't work try defender mites, a mate picked some stuff up at Hamm which works amazingly well, I will get the name of it and post it up later.
