Welcome to HerpVet Services.

I have over 20 years dedicated exotic pet veterinary experience, and over 40 years experience keeping reptiles and amphibians, and I personally provide a complete service, including 24-hour emergency cover, to give the best care and welfare for your pet. We will be able to fully discuss the husbandry of your pet - initial consultations 40 minutes - as well as any health issue, and your pet will - with a few occasional exceptions - always be seeing me.

Please call or email for an appointment, and/or follow the above links for more detailed information about me, the service and hours, as well as information sheets on specific topics and links to sites of interest.

Species treated

Normally I deal with:

I have a special interest in amphibian and invertebrate medicine, and offer reduced rate consultations for them as well as for seahorses and other small tropical fish! I also run a reduced rate scheme for regular clients, with money off consultations and my out of hours fees.

I will see injured wild animals if necessary, especially reptiles and amphibians (or even invertebrates or fish!), but note that uninjured wildlife should almost always be left alone (and in the case of some species, legally must be left undisturbed).

Recent news/updates

Please note you can email me to receive email updates on the service (email updates will only include HerpVet Services updates, which will include notifications if I am away or running any special hours, updates to the website or information pages, any special offers etc). Email addresses submitted will be kept with practice records but never voluntarily released to any other organisation, and will be removed from the list at any time by request.

I also now have a Twitter account (@Herpvet), facebook page and LinkedIn Page where I will post news and service updates as well as exotic animal info and links to interesting articles - please feel free to visit them, like/follow and/or leave any comments (on any of the sites). Please note that liking my page on facebook does not guarantee that you will get everything I post there - I believe you have to keep checking/interacting with the page ongoing to receive posts.

Normal service is in operation.
