Reptiles can make great pets as long as they are properly cared for. It is quite common for reptilian pets to be suffering from malnutrition due to an inadequate diet. When you bring your pet into Salmon Brook Animal Hospital we will make sure to go over diet and proper living conditions in order for your pet to live its healthiest life.

It is important that you bring your reptile pets in for annual check ups in order for us to provide the best care possible. Since it is always difficult to detect illness and health issues affecting exotic pets, these annual exams allow us to establish a base line health for your pet and detect changes over time.

  • Changes in eating or drinking habits
  • Shedding problems
  • Change in stool or urine production
