Tortoise vet - Plymouth
Posted: 16/03/2009 by kirkie

Hi,

Does anyone know of a vet with tortoise experience in Plymouth? There is a very sick little Hermanns that needs urgent attention and the owners vet has refused to see it becuase they dont have enough knowledge.Click and drag me down to the editor

Thanks

Dave

I'm sorry I don't but I am looking for you.  The nearest I've come up with is over 4 hours away so I'll keep looking.  What is the problem?

I googled "exotics vet, Devon" and several practices came up that said they deal with exotics, and one chap had worked with a zoo, but that doesn't mean that they are any good. Sorry! I'll keep looking.

Someone posted up on a forum that their Hermanns had taken a bad turn for the
worse today. Unable to move, passing a lot of fluids and green runny solids.
They are trying to keep it hydrated but their regular vet has refused to treat
the tortoise as they have no experience (not sure if its a vet they use for
other animals but obviously not a tortoise expert) so I've been trying to find
others in the area. This isn't helped by the fact they don't drive. I've found a
few vets with "exotic animal" experince within 1/2 hour of Plymouth and sent the
owner the details.

Thanks for your help.
Dave.
