The Importance of Husbandry for Reptile Pets

The key to a healthy reptile is maintaining natural husbandry and healthy habitats at home. When scheduling an appointment for a sick or well pet, please fill out the Reptile Patient History Form and return by e-mail or fax before your scheduled visit. In case of an emergency, it can be filled out at the time of the visit. If you need to rent an infrared thermometer to check your environment, please let us know.

The annual exam is also a great time to discuss any questions you may have concerning your pet’s health. We understand how important it is to have peace of mind about your pet’s health, so please do not hesitate to ask us any questions or concerns you may have regarding their health and well-being.

At Animal Medical Center, we are highly skilled at caring for and treating a variety of pets and are pleased to offer guidance and quality veterinary care for reptile pets. Please give us a call today to schedule an appointment for your special pet.
