Dr Melanie has a variety of experience with both wild and companion avian, reptile and unusual/exotic pets.
It is a good idea to have any new pet checked over by a vet. At this time we will discuss appropriate housing, nutrition and general care for your pet and ensure it is healthy and parasite-free, particularly before introducing it to other pets in the house.
Annual health examinations are recommended for all pets; not just dogs and cats. This allows your vet to identify problems or illness early, and to ensure diet and care is optimal. Depending on their health status and age, we can do blood tests, faecal examinations as well as a thorough physical exam. Specialised tests for reptile diseases can be done (for example Sunshinevirus in pythons) for both sick and breeding animals.
