Vet Care for Reptiles in Ceres

From lizards and turtles to snakes, geckos, tortoises 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 American Pet Clinic, our team of skilled professionals is well-trained in caring for reptiles and amphibians.

Experienced Care for Reptiles

Reptilian care is a special area of veterinary medicine, and most general practitioners would not have the specialized knowledge or training required to care for these unique species. 

Our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive, proper care for your reptile friends, whether it's a routine appointment or emergency visit to address an illness or condition.

FAQs for Reptilian Care

  • What are reptiles?

    Reptiles are air-breathing vertebrates. Covered in special skin made of bony plates, hard scales or a combination of both, they regularly shed an outer layer of skin. These can include iguanas, tortoises, lizards, turtles, snakes and more.

    To give your pet reptile the best chance at a healthy life, habitat and diet must be meticulously maintained. Preventive care is critical.

  • What can I expect at my appointment?

    Routine veterinary care is critical to helping your reptilian 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.
