Welcome to the herpVet case studies page.
Everyday, Dr. Josh sees a wide variety of cases. Some of these are common problems while other are seen far less frequently. The cases on this page are presented with an overview of the condition, how it was diagnosed, treated and the outcome. Although many of these cases have good outcomes, the reality of reptile medicine is that sometimes, despite all we do, our patients can not be saved. Some of these sad cases will also be presented as they can help our understanding of certain conditions, how to identify them earlier and hopefully, improve our treatments in the future. The cases have been organised into four groups, Snakes, Lizards, Turtles and Amphibians. Some of these cases will contain graphic photos and for that reason, viewer discretion is advised.
This page will be updated regularly so check back soon.
