It belongs in my pet-medicine chest!

Breed:My snakes include a boa constrictor, & various other kinds of colubrids & boids.
I like to keep this product on hand, as I have 22 snakes currently, several of which are geriatric. I've used Bene-Bac before with good effect...it's like the "pro-biotics" that we humans use after a course of antibiotics, to help restore the beneficial bacteria that promotes digestion. I actually have extensive experience with snakes, including the skill to tube-feed a sick one. This product can also be put in the oral cavity of the pre-killed rodent being fed, if the snake is able to take food, making it very easy to administer. Some snakes (especially with new owners) can get into a chronic regurgitation syndrome when they regurgitate a meal from stress (maybe handling too soon after eating etc) and if fed too soon after that, they will continue to regurgitate because their digestive system takes a while to recover. (it's best to wait several weeks before offering another meal) I think this is a product that can help in such cases, and by the way, chronic regurgitation can kill a snake. Mostly this is great to give if your pet has had to have antibiotics.
