Considering humidity exasperates respiratory infections, I would be questioning the logic in such advice, especially from a vet lol

The reason is due to the fact that the drugs will have effects on kidneys (some more then others) so therefor warm baths once a day keep the python well hydrated it also gives the owner a chance to basically nebulise the snake as the humidity will act as a mucolytic which helps break down and bring up the congealed mucous which will be bacteria heaven. The expectation is that the snake will be returned to a dry warm enclosure the other 23 and half hrs of the day

I can see advice like that after the drugs are given, however the vet said to do it "in the meantime" before the snake has seen a vet.
Well he could be going back and getting the injections done at the vet every 48-72hrs and is in the middle of the course. but either way a sick snake will be assumed dehydrated and it certainly will be preferable to have the snake well hydrated before starting ab's.
