Hi Macy, this is the one I have heard recommended the most on Herp sites:

For others in Queensland have a look on this site:

Thank you so much!!

It's hard to know things about frogs here because there dosent seem to be a register of some sort.

Where I live, I get frogs almost on a weekly basis and mostly after rain of coarse, but they are everywhere, with not much info, so thanks!

Australia Zoo at Beerwah will take wild frogs.

I've no personal experience with this one but I was told by the Herp people at the Stafford Pet Wharehouse that the vet next door to them does reptiles. Sorry I can't be more specific but if you rang the pet shop I'm sure they'd give you the name.

I have also taken my frogs to Heathcote in Sydney south to see Joe and he was very helpful. The staff are great also.

There is also another vet at camden in nsw.

Avian, Reptile and Exotic Pet Hospital
University of sydney Camden
415 Werombi Road Camden
02 93511798


Cindy there was very helpful and compassionate. My little Dainty tree frog had what looked like his eye bulging out of the socket. Cindy did a swab of his eye and worked out what it was. With the right medication the swelling went down and his eye went back in. He is blind in that eye but still gets around great.

In Brisbane, BBEVS will treat frogs. Haven't personally taken mine there and hopefully won't have to. :)
I did take my beardie in for a checkup and they were pretty good with her.

Hi guys just thought I'd add my 2 cents worth.
Dr. Hough and Christian are no longer practicing (Dr. Hough isn't, anyway) so this veterinary clinic can be taken down from the Adelaide list.

I went to the Somerton Park Veterinary clinic on Diagonal Rd here in S.A. and was less than impressed...He took one look at ONE of my 4 frogs and diagnosed them with red-leg, which they definitely do not have. He then prescribed Gentamicin as the treatment over Baytril....

I then traveled an hour to Salisbury Park vet clinic (Vets4Pets) and got a less-than-friendly reception from Dr. Trevor Rickman - he didn't even say hello to me when I walked in!! Overall this made the visit extremely awkward. I asked for Metrin and gave him the recommended topical dosage - my frogs had a suspected protozoal infection. Instead he gave me the American-manufactured Flagyl which comes as a syrup and can not be given topically. For three days the frogs had to have this medicine orally, which put them (and me!) under a great deal of stress that they did not have to endure if he'd given me the Australian-made product. He then checked a dropping for any worms, said he couldn't find any but sold me Ivermectin anyway.

All-in-all it was a less than pleasant experience, and I found him to be very abrupt and quite rude.

I hope these reviews help someone,

Leela

Desperately Need Vet

Postby sorrelg » Thu Feb 07, 2013 6:33 am

I dont know what is wrong with my little frog or it could be my big frog, i dont know but one day after coming home from school, i found some white stuff on one of the branches in the tank and just this morning, i found the same substance but 1 bit was pink and the other dark red. Both frog are male and are fed every 2-3 days and they have never been sick before. I have only had them for 2 years. Help! I really need a good vet in Ballarat that would be able to help me. Thankyou! :(

For Canberrans:

I find it funny to see the vet literally across the road from my house mentioned. Their nurse has tree frogs but that's about as experienced as they get. All Creatures is one of the most expensive vets in Canberra, just sayin'.

There are two herp vets. Jan Spate and Sandy Hume (who usually doesn't take amphibians). Can't get through to either (not picking up the phone and sick respectively) and I really need a vet. Might walk across the road and see them now.

I've been trying to find a vet for the past month or two that I can get into and believe me, it's frustrating.
