garter snakes should not eat slugs they are not made to because of the slugs defense system in which the slugs create a sticky goo when eaten which can glue the snakes mouth shut. The only snakes meant to eat slugs are the family of slug eating snakes which have special saliva to counteract the slugs defenses. If the snake wont eat anything else it would be best to release it and get a captive bred snake.

They can eat slugs, but having them as the only diet would be unhealthy for the snake. Nutrients problems, and most likely some digestion problems as you have said. As said above, they are not designed for only eating slugs.
