I've spoken to Brian Agnew in Adelaide and he assured me that his entire practice is focussed on horses only; he didn't feel comfortable about being able to work with frogs.
He did chase up someone though and phoned me back the next day to report that the name that comes up for frogs is Dr. Hough (see earlier posting for details).

Cheers,
Cairns Frog Hospital

:) Hi I can also add another herp vet to this list... Phillipa Mason from the Healesville vet clinic is excellent with frogs as well as reptiles. She is currently on maternity leave, but if you ring and let the clinic know you need her advice she will make a time and see you. Very professional! Also caring...had a snake put down not too long ago and she was wonderful!

thanks for that ! one wallsend near me goodio !

one frog has protuding hip/back bony jutting point and it was always there ever since I obtained him at 8 months old, so wanted to make sure he is ok, - genetics or dislocated or got damaged during moprhs stage etc etc
he doesnt seem to be in pain, always calling at night and eats well in own container that I take him every 3 days to ensure he feeds as he can't jump well to catch fast enough, no problem feeding if one walks by him as that one gets gulped !

ta (likely in jan - vet)

For Sydney:
Dr. Alex Rosenwax
SHOP 3, BLOCK D, 1 HUNTER STREET, GREEN SQUARE, 2017
(Alexandria)

Dr. Ross Perry has apparently gone holistic and that being said, I don't know if he is treating frogs anymore.
He has also moved to the northern beaches in Cromer.

Hi Yonie,
I am in Warrnambool, and I know that the Warrnambool vet clinic can and will help you, they dont actually know too much about frogs them selves but they will call the mellb zoo on your behalf and get help that way, but it does cost and its not cheap, so maybe the better option is for you to call the zoo yourself!!!!!
I know this is prob not much help. But as far as I know there really isnt anyone around this area that deals in frogs health.
cheers Janet

Thanks Janet,
I'll give the zoo a call. I havent had any luck with any of the vets Ive called so far so I think thats the best way to go.

For frog owners in Adelaide a frog friendly vet can be located at Salisbury Park Veterinary Hospital on Main North Road.

His name is Dr Kristo Delport.

My frog has been ill for some time. Initially I took him to the clinic and was seen by Dr Rickman who also works at this practice. I needed to change the antibiotics I was giving to my frog ( on the advice from the CFH ) and contacted the vet hospital. Dr Rickman was unavailable so I saw Dr Delport instead. He spoke with Deborah at the CFH and followed all of the suggestions that she made. Since then he has researched medications and doses suitable for frogs and has treated our frog like the loved pet that he is to our family.

We have had to call him on a number of occasions to alter treatment on Deborah's advice and, he has always responded in a positive way and seems more than willing to try what is suggested. If he is not available at the time we call, he always rings back.

We had a suggestion to try an antibiotic that the vet hosp. did not have in stock and seems hard to get in the vet. trade but Dr Delport rang around, located it and had it sent to the surgery for us to collect.

I have had some bad experiences with vets ( like anything else in life) but I have been very impressed with this one. If you have a sick frog and live in Adelaide then it is worth trying him.

:D

We're an Aussie crew down here so I think being able to find out about good American vets would be almost impossible for us. There should be some sites up there though that might be collecting that info.
Try Melissa Kaplan's Herp Collection and Kingsnake.com
Also try Herpdigest and www.frogs.org which is in Wash, DC

Good luck,
the CFH
