Retrovirus Infection in Snakes

Treatment

 

Unfortunately, there is no known treatment or cure for IBD at this time. If an infected snake has an acceptable quality of life, it can be isolated and its symptoms managed for a period of time.

 

Living and Management

 

If an infected reptile cannot be quarantined away from uninfected snakes, or if it is suffering, euthanasia is the most humane option available.
