are many different types of fungi which can easily cause infections
in snakes. Eye infections
can be caused by fungi which is usually the result of a contaminated
habitat. Standing water which has been left over a period
of time is one of the most common causes. Skin infections
in your snake can also be caused the same way.
If you suspect that your snake
has an infection the first thing to do is clean and disinfect
the enclosure completely. You will likely need a quarantine
habitat to place yoru snake in while you are cleaning the
other. Also, you should make sure that you are not using a
substrate which encourages the growth of fungi or bacteria.
As with most snake diseases, fungal
infections will require the attention of a veternarian. The
veterinarian will usually prescribe antibiotics which can
eliminate the fungal infection. Without antibiotics some infections
can be hard or even impossible to remove completely.
