I need some good rat snake medical/health advice. I just checked on one of my bruminating adult female black rat snakes and discovered she has what looks like blister disease. Her bin is 100% clean and free of excess moisture and certainly not damp. She is on clean newspaper and her water dish is always fresh. This disease is usually caused from bad care and hygiene practices but my snakes are kept SUPER spotless. I think I've read somewhere that this disease can also be caused by food left over in their gut before cooling them down...I hope that is not the case because I think that would be fatal. Anyway, I've never dealt with this before and not sure of the best path to take. What do you guys think? What antibiotics would be best? What is best to put on the blisters themselves? Should I open them and clean them out with something? Any advise would be helpful..I really like this big sweet girl and will do whatever it takes to help her.
