Australian Herp Vets

Postby snakesmum » Tue Apr 07, 2009 5:07 pm

Hi Everyone,

Some of you may have seen my website, Wolfwoodwares, where I
have a list of Australian Herp Vets.

This website now has a new URL and the vet page is as follows:


http://www.wolfwood.com.au/rept2.html

Would very much appreciate it if anyone has any updates or
corrections, they could let me know....... thanks.
Email is wolfwoodwares@gmail.com

Cheers

Hi Jean and welcome! We use your site a lot and have the info in a sticky with all the vet info we have.

Jim Greenwood is no longer at Canterbury although apparently there is a Part Time vet at Canterbury that has an interest in Frogs and Reptiles.

Jim is now here:

Pound Road Vet Clinic - (03) 9799 1479
8 Pound Road HAMPTON PARK VIC 3976


Also I believe there is someone available at Lort Smiths:

And Brendan Carmel is available one day a week at the Werribee Vet Uni?

Hello Ann,

Thanks for the updated info. I'd just found out about
Jim Greenwood from Shane Simpson but didn't know
the rest

Off to update the page immediately! ;-)

Cheers
Jean

Update To Australian Herp Vets

Postby snakesmum » Tue Oct 12, 2010 12:38 pm

Hello Everyone,

Received an email today updating one of the Victorian Herp Vets.
(Thanks Ann!)

Have just spoken to Emerald Vet Clinic, and received confirmation
that Dr Cameron, who used to practice at Altona, is now at
their practice.

The Australian Herp Vets page has been updated accordingly.

http://www.wolfwood.com.au/rept2.html

As always, please let me know if you find any errors on the
page.

Thanks
Jean

Great service you're providing, Jean! I've never had to take a frog to the vet but I have considerable experience with tortoises. Some non-specialist vets have the humility to contact the experts when confronted with anything non-mammal; others can be downright dangerous in their prescribed treatments!

I would urge all frog keepers to check the web page for their nearest specialist vet before something goes wrong, and keep the number near the phone.

Thanks Leah! :-)

I started the page because of the difficulty I had finding a
vet to treat a snake when I first started keeping them. It
sort of grew from there.

Cheers
Jean

Herp vets need all the support we can give them and our herp pets deserve nothing less.

Sometimes I freak out at the arrogance of people taking on the care of animals they know so little about. These are often wild animals with a great life expectancy until the collector's mitt descends on them.

Oh the horror of a formerly wild animal maintained in a tiny fraction of its preferred range with an ignorant keeper whose ego depends on the admiration of visitors for the 'realistic' cage s/he has designed. People with shelves and shelves of such 'habitats' just so they can look at 'wild' creatures every day.

These same people say they 'love' frogs (or whatever).

I am rarely seen in the Trading Zone...

Another Website Update For Herp Vets

Postby snakesmum » Wed Aug 03, 2011 3:24 pm

Hello All,

Been doing some work on the website, updating code, etc., and
all that techo stuff which drives me up the wall.

Anyway, the "Australian Herp Vets" page has a slightly changed
URL, to SHTML, as below. Hope you like the changes! :-)

http://www.wolfwood.com.au/rept2.shtml

Later:
Because it is so well known now, I'm also keeping the older
version of the URL so you can still find the Herp Vet List at
http://www.wolfwood.com.au/rept2.html

Cheers
Jean
