Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. It does not sound like the snake had anything to do with this. The ear cleaning is probably stressful on him and he does not know what to do. You will have to give your guys some time and try to talk to him in a soft voice and try giving him treats so he will learn to trust you again. If this continues, have your vet examine him to know if there is a medical cause for his odd behavior. Does that make sense to you? Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
