Wellness Care is a Critical Component to Keeping Your Animal Happy and Comfortable.

Often times animals hide their illnesses until it is too late, which makes routine physical examinations critical. By being able to identify and correct husbandry problems and find signs of early illness, we can help to prevent and treat problems earlier for your pet. All too often we see pocket pets after they have been ill for weeks or months which makes treating and “fixing” them much more difficult. Earlier detection means a healthier and happier pet!

Preventative care also includes:

  • immunizations for species requiring vaccinations
  • deworming
  • consultations on correct husbandry and diet for your pet

  • During your lizard’s wellness exam, we will be performing a comprehensive examination from the nose to the tip of the tail.
  • By performing a complete examination it will help us look for subtle and not so subtle changes that may indicate an early health problem.
  • We will be looking for things such as oral lesions or sores, checking scales for signs of color changes/sores/mites, and looking for any masses or swellings.
  • We will review your current enclosure set up including things such as temperature, humidity, and substrate choice to ensure proper husbandry for your species of lizard.
  • We will evaluate body conditioning to ensure that your lizard is at a proper weight and review nutritional recommendations with you.
  • Routine fecal examinations are also recommended at your visit to look for intestinal parasites, but to also evaluate for any changes in color or consistency which may indicate a health problem.

What People
Have Said

"Since CAC has become my primary veterinary clinic I have introduced many friends, clients and my sisters to the clinic, both of which have told me how grateful they are to have "found" a clinic with such progressive and highly qualified doctors. The quality of the support staff that helps keep things moving smoothly is also important. The first impression you get of any clinic comes from the reception staff; at CAC you are always met with a smile and a big HELLO! The welcoming atmosphere, the mere presence of the building, the modern technology, the progressive thinking, the compassion shown to the humans and animals are all things I love about CAC but it truly is the people inside the building that keep me coming back! THANK YOU CAC for making an impression on my life and on the lives of my boys!"
