When and How to Euthanize a Snake

    It's a subject nobody likes talking about, but you need to be prepared for when that day comes. In this video I discuss how to know "when" it's best to euthanize a snake, and the currently-recognized best ways to do it. If you're like me though, you'll probably do best just bringing your snake to the vet.
    Don't worry, no snakes are actually euthanized in this video!
    Link to a paper discussing euthanasia techniques how reptiles can survive up to an hour after decapitation: www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=www.chameleonforums.com/attachments/euthanasia-of-reptiles-baines-davies2004-pdf.13220/&ved=2ahUKEwiItLjQv9fdAhUhxYMKHWXKBw84ChAWMAB6BAgGEAE&usg=AOvVaw2Yo0TkHhtp5eKAnilDxLjJ
    Link to the pithing technique mentioned in the video (found on pages 6 and 9): staff.unimelb.edu.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0008/2046986/STANDARD-Humane-killing-of-reptiles-FINAL.pdf

My family had to put our baby corn snake down a year ago. When we got him he wouldn't eat anything we exhaushted every option and ask a lot of professtionals for help but at the end of the day no one had a clue what was wrong but after so many failed attempts to find out what was wrong my vet found that he had a cancerous tumour in his stomach that had prevented him from eating so itwould of been there for a long while probably since before we got him! so we came the sad conclusion that we had to put him down because if we hadn't he would of just gotten weaker and weaker until he had either sucome to the cancer or starved to death.. πŸ˜”

I mean, when you overbreed for "rare" colorations, you're going to increase the chances of getting other genetic issues like the kinks in the spine. So.

I think the most humane method is the lethal injection. Cause we first apply anesthesia so the animal is unconscious and don't feel any pain when it dies.

Pithing, if I still remember my first dissecting experience correctly, is when you sever the spinal cord of an animal (usually by using a pithing needle) to paralyze it so it wouldn't feel pain. When done correctly, it takes about only 2 or 3 secs.

If you or a family member has a gun (obviously be safe and take care) but if you have a .22 pistol or rifle you could put it down quickly if you put it right at its head a pull the trigger. Imo it would be better for me to put my pet down with a gun quickly rather than hearing it's skull and bones being crushed.

Euthanize = End a life = Kill Why do English speaking people "hide" this fact of live and not just say, killed or end itΒ΄s live... or even cause it to die?

I was gonna say it would probably work to just smash their head with a rock or something. Its an awful thing to do but sometimes it's necessary to do something a bit more gruesome to allow the animal to die quickly and as painlessly as possible.

For tropical species you can refrigerate to prevent nerve conduction, anaesthetising the snake. There's also the bolt method, which can be achieved by driving a large nail through the brain.
