In Cold Blood: Practical Reptile Care

Presented by Dr. Victoria Bender (Exotics Veterinarian)

RACE approved (1 CE Credit)

As the popularity of reptiles has grown, so has demand for reptile veterinary care. Today, reptile medicine and surgery represents a viable subset of companion animal practice. Reptiles are stoic and have evolved to mask signs of illness, which makes them a challenge to diagnose and treat. There can be significant variability in appropriate husbandry between species, which directly influences overall healthy and subsequent illness. This lecture will present an approach to common disease presentations in reptiles, outline the important role of husbandry in their care, and offer practical suggestions for those who want to take their reptile practice to the next level.
