My ball python Wally got himself a small splinter about 4 inches behind his neck. hes still a juvenile and i was very worried. You can tell around where the splinter was it was a small wound. I have since pulled the reptibark he has, and the stick i had in there as well (He loves to perch on the stick) I was able to get the splinter out, and applied a small amount of bacitracin with a Q-tip. I have put down Aspen as substrate now, as i am unsure of where the splinter came from. I can be overly worried with my pets, and im wondering if i had taken the right steps in using bacitracin on the snake, or should i have left it. I was worried that he may possibly get infected, and i want to do everything i can to prevent it. I can touch where the small wound is, and it doesn't seem to bother him any, but i am keeping a close eye on him. Any additional advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
