 MY SNAKE’S GOT SCALE ROT

If it’s fresh go to the you can treat it yourself, if not go to the vet as SOON as possible. If left untreated your snake can die and hopefully that’s not what you want. Not having seen the animal so hard to give advice since I do not know the true extent

With only a few scales what need to be done is having a clean environment (That’s the most important), I would recommend switching the substrate over to newspaper, the affected area can be cleaned up with some betadine and some anti-biotic ointment can be apply.

If the BP has a large bowl of water and soak in it it should be changed to a smaller one.

Once the animal shed everything will be back to normal.

In most advance cases a vet is required as anti-biotics are often needed.

The key to prevent this clean environment and not damp substrate.
