Dangers of owning pet reptiles

 
 
While reptiles make cute and unusual pets, they also come with a few warnings — especially so with snakes. We recommend familiarising yourself with the possible dangers of owning a reptile before you get one.

Disease
Reptiles have the potential of passing zoonotic diseases through bacteria, fungi, viruses, or parasites. Salmonella is a common issue. Botulism is another possibility. The good news is that our staff can guide you through some precautions to ensure diseases are not transmitted to you from your pet reptile.

Safety
At Pets to Pamper, we do not sell venomous snakes (our scorpions, on the other hand, have venom that can be dangerous to humans and other pets in your home). We can show you how to handle and care for pet snakes (and scorpions) when you come to our store.
