Fungal Diseases in Reptiles & Snakes




Antifungal medicines are used to treat the reptile's infection. Unfortunately, a full recovery of the animal rarely occurs. Surgery to remove the fungal mass in the area of infection can prove successful. However, an antibiotic treatment is usually recommended following surgery to prevent any secondary infection.




Good sanitation and a well-balanced diet may decrease the incidents of fungal diseases in reptiles.
