To med or not to med
I was talking to a friend today(an experienced and respected herper)and I mentioned that I try to do all I can do medically for a sick snake(or reptile) including injections and all other MODERN techniques of reptilian veterinary medicine. He was of the opinion that he tries all husbandry techniques but will NOT give injections or any human medical relief to the reptile..."I will make it comfortable and if it dies it dies" ...It , he feels it is unethical to try to save it with human interferance....I must state that this friend of mine is a great guy and a real pro when it comes to Reptile husbandry....it is just his opinion...it differs from mine but is just as valid(this is in no way an attack to him..so please don' take it that way)
WHAT ARE YOUR OPINIONS ON THIS MATTER...TO MED OR NOT TO MED????
