Those that are pro-venomoid say there's no long term effect, those that are anti-venomoid say it hurts the snake in the long run. I've seen vets with conflicting views. I'm not sure how much venom helps digestion. Neurotoxic venom effects the nervous system. How is that aiding in digestion? Although some primarily neurotoxic species also have a nasty necrosis that accompanies the bite. The monocled cobra comes to mind. But I'm not a pro, they may also carry a hemotoxin mixed in there. I'm against it myself. To me it's like getting a pitbull and pulling the teeth out because you're afraid of a bite. You're probably just gonna have to make up your mind based on your own opinion. If your reasons for looking into a venomoid are because of fear of getting tagged then I would look into why get the snake in the first place? No reason to physically alter any animal for personal satisfaction. JUST MY OPINION!!!
