Reptiles & Amphibians



Reptiles and amphibians are very well adapted to their native environments, but that also means that they have very specific environmental and dietary requirements. With improper supplements and husbandry, reptiles can suffer from certain nutritional or environmental deficiencies. In many cases these deficiencies can have a profound effect on their health and be the underlying cause of the illness that brings them to the veterinarian. In diurnal reptiles, illness can be caused by lack of proper UV lighting. Nocturnal reptiles often suffer from a lack of proper supplements. Parasites are very common among pet reptiles. Reptiles who suffer impaction tend to be housed on a loose substrate. They may have improper heating, or fed prey items that are too large to properly digest. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can affect growth, the immune system and the health of various organs.


Reptiles and amphibians have health concerns and illnesses just like any other animals. Medical concerns can come from injuries, parasites, bacteria, viruses and nutritional deficiencies. The types of diseases of these animals are as unique as they are. As members of your family, we feel that they deserve to have the same level of care that is expected for dogs, cats or people.
