 Worms, eeeewwwww

my older corn snake came up positive with pin and tape worms. the vet said the previous owner probably fed her wild mice. she was treated orally for the pins and an injection for the tapes. does anyone have experince with these worms? i have a baby corn, but they donít interact with eachother. the vet told me to remove the aspen substrate and replace it with paper towels, so i did that for both snake just incase the little girl has them too. i have to bring the vet another fecal in 3 weeks. iíd appreciate any advice, experience, opinions...thanx

I have not had worm probs with my snakes, but with dog/cats it can be spread back and forth... quarentine any snakes you have from this one (maybe have a fecal done on any other snakes you have also) and be sure to wash hands Thoroughly before and after Touching Any Animal... pin worms are also in dog/cats :o)
