Reptiles are very tough and can often hide signs of disease until the problem has become very advanced. Many injuries that initially seem minor, can actually be very serious. All reptiles and amphibians are able to feel pain. We recommend always erring on the side of caution when something seems unusual with your reptile and having them examined by an reptile veterinarian.
Signs of illness or injury in reptiles:
Bringing your reptile to the vet can be a stressful time, especially when they are unwell or injured.
All reptiles need to arrive at the appointment in an enclosure. Usually their normal enclosure is too large or difficult to bring in, so examples of other carriers include:
Turtles, frogs and axolotls – please bring a sample of their tank water in a separate container.
Examination of faecal samples is a routine part of the examination. Please bring a fresh faecal sample to the consultation, if this is available.
