At Poster Animal Hospital, we provide quality veterinary care for reptiles and amphibians in Westport.
Vet Care for Reptiles & Amphibians
From lizards and turtles to snakes, geckos, frogs and other creatures that have evolved from ancestors over millions of years, reptiles and amphibians are sought after by many animal lovers seeking a unique yet challenging companion.
Many of these species require special care and consideration - from the type of environment they require to diet, safety concerns and compliance with local laws (some reptiles and amphibians are banned in certain areas).
At Poster Animal Hospital, our team of skilled professionals is well-trained in caring for reptiles and amphibians.
What are reptiles and amphibians?
Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates. Covered in special skin made of bony plates, scales or a combination of both, they regularly shed an outer layer of skin. These can include iguanas, tortoises, lizards, turtles, snakes and more.
Amphibians are small vertebrates that need a moist environment or water to survive. Species in this group of animals include salamanders, frogs, newts and toads.
To thrive, habitat and diet must be meticulously maintained for both reptiles and amphibians. Preventive care is critical.
What can I expect at my appointment?
Routine veterinary care is critical to helping your reptilian or amphibian friend live a long, healthy life. A physical exam and any required diagnostic tests will be completed at each visit.
Appropriate preventive care will also be administered. Finally, the veterinarian will dedicate time to answering any questions you may have about your exotic pet's health, nutrition, at-home care or other aspects of ownership.
Experienced Care for Reptiles & Amphibians
Reptilian and amphibian care are special areas of veterinary medicine, and most general practitioners would not have the specialized knowledge or training required to care for these unique species.
Your companion deserves the best care from a qualified veterinarian who is comfortable and qualified to treat your beloved pet.
We understand that caring for this type of exotic animal requires special knowledge and experience.
Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive, proper care for your reptile and amphibian friends, whether it's a routine appointment or emergency visit to address an illness or condition.
