BugmanPrice Posted January 9, 2010 Share Posted January 9, 2010 I was wondering if anybody has experience removing subdermal foreign objects from snakes before. I have an adult female Boiga dendrophila that has, what I think are, subdermal parasites. You can see something under the skin between the scales but I can’t tell what they are nor can I get a good picture. When I helped put pit-tags in rattlesnakes we just used a hypodermic needle to inject under the skin and used superglue to shut the wound. I’m not sure if just using a scalpel to incise, forceps to remove whatever it is, and glue to close the incision would work or not. Anybody have suggestions???
