The only vet i know of in my area that deals with reptiles (amongst other regular pets) is "The Veterinary Health Centre" in St Annes (near Blackpool). Compared to other vets i use for my cats, dog, cockatiel and chinchillas, this one is very expensive! I think maybe it's because of the location and also they seem to have the only vet with a knowledge of reptiles in our area.

I second this, can be a bit pricey but if your insured it's all good. She's been fantastic with us recently.

I no longer have any respect for the vet in St.Annes. One of my Plated lizards needed emergency surgery (oversized eggs stuck inside her) and they wanted all the money upfront before even seeing her! I said i could pay half now and half when i get paid as we had already spent over £200 there a couple of weeks earlier (local reptile store sold me very ill lizards!). The vets told me the lizard needs to be seen asap and is going to die without surgery but they refused to see her as i could not pay over £300 all in one go :shock:

Anyway my other vet that deals with my non-reptile pets (Wadsworth in Cleveleys) referred me to "Pennine Vets" in Tottington, Bury. The vet there who performed the surgery was fantastic and let us settle the bill in two payments with no fuss as he was genuinly concerned for the lizards health unlike the vet in St.Annes who is definitely all about the money (she didn't even know what species my Sudan Plated lizards were!!).

The vets in St. Annes are overpriced, don't care and seem to have little knowledge on reptiles... She told me to search the internet when i asked certain questions.

Just nit-picking here but Shifnal isn't part of Telford, its just near to Telford, Shifnal is actually counted as part of Bridgnorth
is that the closest herp vets to telford then? dont really fancy strolling into pets at home with my royals! telford is officially lame.

I use Chine House in Sileby Leicestershire. I get annual health checks for all my reptiles and take them to see Craig Hunt. He really loves his reps and he has often waived or discounted charges as I use him reguarly making everything but the petrol cost cheaper. My snake had 3 overnights FOC as he could not identify the problem. Clearly puts care before profit.

Update for Cornwall area.......the Herp vet Steve Philps has gone and relocated to Hampshire:devil:

The only one I know of that's left down here is Chris Gardner at Truro Vets

Not used him personally so can't comment on his knowledge.

A good one for if you're around Surrey/Berkshire is Barkham Grove in Wokingham, took one of my frogs there on Monday and had a faecal sample done and they were excellent, very reasonably priced as well, would fully recommend them!
