So, something I was curious about.
I posted on here awhile back about my butter female, who was having issues with swelling in her throat and lower jaw. I took her to the vet, it was found to be an abscess, and it’s been drained and is healing up just fine. She had a checkup today and the vet said it was doing a lot better. Hopefully it’ll be completely gone in the next several weeks.
She’s currently on an oral pain medication and an antibiotic to help her along with recovery.
My question is, does a snake being on antibiotics/medicinal treatment have any affects on breeding? How soon could I try breeding her after she has recovered and stopped taking the meds?
I’d love to breed her this season, but I also want to make the best choice for her. She’s around 2500-2600 grams and has great body condition, so that wouldn’t be a concern in that sense.
I’m perfectly fine with giving her the year off if that’s what would be best for her, since I’d like for her to produce a nice healthy clutch for me.
Either way, I’m still curious to know if anyone has any info on it. I had heard antibiotics had a negative impact on breeding, but I don’t remember where I read it from or if it was a legitimate statement. Google searching hasn’t really brought up any results either.
