    Re: Quarantine Talk Thread

    Now here's another question about quarantining multiple animals.

    Quarantine single animals in isolation? Or quarantine more than one in the same tank?

    I know what I consider to be the sensible scientific method, however I think it's not clearcut, and there are circumstances when I would break a strict protocol. Discuss.

    I would think it is best to separate all snakes.

    Can you give me an idea as to what situation would void strict protocol?

    Re: Quarantine Talk Thread

    Okay...so if I am getting a snake from my breeder that I trust...and he is the same breeder that I got Hermes from, but, the snake has neuro issues...that we are fairly certain are congenital and not contagious...but we cannot be 100% positive...how long should I quarantine the new snake before putting him in with Hermes? I mean, the neuro issues are not going away. So, the risk is there if by chance they turn out to be contagious somehow. I have discussed the neuro issues at length with the breeder. There are no indications that the snake is sick in any way other than having these neurological issues. And what if I don't have another room for the tank? And what is LTC?

    As Steve normally says, it's better safe than sorry. He quarentines all snakes he recieves (I believe), even when it comes from a trusted friend or breeder.

    I do.
    Which brings up the point that there is no set way of doing this. What works for me is just that.

    My hope for this thread was to stimulate discussion about the procedure and hopefully cause people with no quarantine procedures to adopt one.

    Marnie - LTC = Long-Term Captive
    And if you were to lean more towards Greg's method, a CB from a trusted breeder, wouldnt need quarantine.

    Steve - the sort of scenario I had in mind was two snakes from the same place that had already been kept together. Would you separate those?
    Another scenario would be two snakes brought in at the same time that were going to undergo the same quarantine period and treatment.

    Even trusted breeders have the occasional oopsies.

    Agreed. I'd still quarantine for a period, I was using this as an example for how different people have slightly different methods. How do you handle quarantine Stefan?

    Re: Quarantine Talk Thread

    Well I am actually just feeling out everyone's opinion here...since my situation is a little different...with the snake having the neuro issues. I was wondering what Greg would do in that case...snake is coming from a trusted breeder but has the neuro problem, which is most likely congenital...but we can't be absolutely certain as to the cause.

    I am also curious as to the answer to Chris' question...I mean obviously if you, Steve, send me two snakes in the spring that have been housed together...I won't have to quarantine them separately, right?
