Snake injured.

Postby Gizelle » Wed Apr 22, 2020 7:09 am

My new snake (§Mrs. BoopSnoodleTheHarmlessNoodle), was wild caught, since it was injured and isn’t available online, it is a Rough earth snake, and has cutes by his pp area... I was wondering what the best thing I should do to him and why snakes in my area always have these bites. I’m planning on scrubbing the wounds with antibacterial soap, the putting a small bandage for no infection coming in, advice needed.... he also has a nub tail for some reason...

Are cats or dogs around? Most likely a predator attack.

You can use some raw unpasteurized honey on the wounds to keep them clean from infection. Just make sure the tank is clean too so that no dirt and grime get stuck in the wound either. Or you could use some neosporin as long as it isn't the pain relief kind.

Actually, the neighborhood dosent have any wild animals roaming around... we’ve seen a mole and rats and birds and lizards... those could’ve done it,
And thanks for the tip about honey and tank, since the tank has sand in it since it used to be my hermit crabs, I’ll have to change it, and can I bandage the wound?
