    Re: Nebulization of Sick/New Snakes

    I have been very fortunate in that I've never had a snake with a respiratory infection.
    I will do some more research on this process and possibly add it to equipment list.

    That's for starting this thread.

    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    Re: Nebulization of Sick/New Snakes

    It is sure a useful tool to have on hand. I wish I knew about this with my first garter snake of this year. She had a terrible RI and I thought it had went away so I put her in with another snake, and one day when I was feeding her, I saw and heard mucus in her glottis, and separated her IMMEDIATELY. And Steve, please feel free to share with us what you find in your research of this product. I can't speak for everyone else but I am sure interested myself.

    I just checked craigslist.com and found a couple medical use nebulizers for $20 That's cheaper the the Zoo Med model.
    I'm guessing the medical use ones are probably built better.

    Yeah, but I think you actually have to draw (suck) on those to get the vapor out. I've seen them in use and barely anything comes out until you draw it out with your lungs. The zoo med thing is a fogger for increasing humidity so it puts out a lot of vapor without having to draw it out. And I would think that using a room humidifier, the vapor coming out would be too hot.

    My sons nebulizer blows a controlled stream of air into a cup that holds medicine. This air stream agitates a stem and ring contraption that vibrates and breaks the liaison medicine into tiny droplets that are carried on the stream of air out up out of the cup and into an attached, vented face mask.

    I think the airstream would carry the mist into a hide sized container just as well. There would be less cross venting fas my sons breath does move air through the mask.

    Re: Nebulization of Sick/New Snakes

    And don't forget you need to be able to mix this stuff into a liter. The bottle that comes with the zoo med fogger is 1L. And please correct me if I'm wrong with this...I don't believe that a disinfectant would harm a snake (assuming that it is if safe for the snake) even if there are no bacteria. I would not recommend giving medicine to a snake that doesn't need the medicine, but this just sterilizes the lung area of any bacteria (or at least disinfects a good amount of it).

    There is usually some kind of trade off(good/bad) when any chemical is used.

    This is used for animals though.
