Find a Reptile Veterinarian
If you own a reptile or amphibian, you may be interested in finding a veterinarian that provides the specialized care these animals needs. A local veterinary clinic that focuses specifically on treating "herps" (reptiles and amphibians) may be able to provide the particular type of treatment and routine care your pet needs. A herpetology or herp veterinarian should have received further education and training specifically related to reptiles and amphibians in order to properly treat these species of animals. Their veterinary services may include regular examinations as well as emergency treatment, surgical procedures and preventative care. A knowledgeable reptile vet can also offer helpful guidance regarding the proper nutrition, living environment and other aspects of care required for a snake, lizard, turtle or other reptile to thrive.
