I would recomend following the vets advice. I have used Baytril on injured sea turtles in the past, so that sounds fine. I would try getting the syringe in the corner of the mouth gently and using it to open their jaws, then slowly squirting the solution in (giving them chance to swallow as it goes does down). If you try forcing it in at the front and you slip (these snakes will really try to resist you), you may damage the top of their windpipe that sits in the base of the mouth.

Next time you go on vacation, you owe it to your animals to get them 'house-sat' or take them somewhere to be looked after. If you have a power cut or your heating equipment breaks down, your animals may die. It costs me $15 a week to get my snake 'baby-sat'
