At Vine Tree Vets we aim to provide a comprehensive service for all exotic pets.

We have dedicated hospitalisation facilities for reptiles and amphibians.  We also have a dedicated preparation room where our exotic species can be treated away from the hustle and bustle of the practice.

We are well equipped with all the necessary anaesthetic equipment. Our vets are experienced in a wide range of surgical procedures from, routine neutering to more involved soft tissue and orthopaedic operations.

In addition we have a full range of diagnostic equipment including ultrasound, x-ray, rehabilitation facilities, endoscopy and in house blood, faecal and urinary analysers.

We are also happy to help with all aspects of husbandry and dietary advice.  The vast majority of clinical conditions seen at the surgery are as a direct result of incorrect feeding or failure to provide an optimal habitat.

Species covered:

Reptiles: Lizards (including geckos, chameleons, iguanas, bearded and water dragons)

Snakes: Boas and pythons

Chelonian: Tortoise, terrapins and turtles

Amphibians: Frogs, toads and salamanders


Please note that we do not treat bats or venomous reptiles.
