Hello guys! Long time no see! I promise I'll post some updates soon, it has been a crazy year for me. Anyways, as some of you know I began fostering snakes for a local reptile rescue a while back. My foster Zola went to live in her new forever home in Fairbanks; she was adopted by a friend and is doing great. She is very well loved and spoiled rotten. I am about to take on my second foster snake, a 6 foot common boa who is 20 years old. The problem is he has been sick. He was treated with antibiotic injections by the vet, but the rescue owner said that he still has a bit of a rattle. What I want to know, is HOW contagious are URIs? I can put him in a different room, and will obviously if he is still contagious. However, room in my bedroom is tight so I'd like to be able to at least eventually move him into the pet room. Also, if I do put him in my room, he will be across the hall from Shiiva's room. What precautions should I be taking, how far can the airborne particles travel, can it be carried on my clothes (I'd think so?), etc etc.... I am going to contact the vet who has been treating the snake. I know him from working at the clinic for a while. I wanted to see what you guys had to say too though. Thanks in advance for the input!
