Hope it helps.
Many thanks for this info, we took our axies to Clayton Knight at Deception Bay (on this list) and we were very grateful for his advice and the treatment he gave our axies.

Would recommend him if you live within reasonable distance.

Can I recommend Molly Varga at CheshirePet in Holmes Chapel?

She is 1 of only 4 vets in the UK to hold a diploma in exotic animal medicine and was the first and only vet I went to with my first axolotl before "he" passed away, my snake has also been for a check up with her when he was off his food last year.

Holmes Chapel Clinic
Manor Lane

Luckily I haven't had cause to see this vet with my axis/caecillians yet, but I took a gecko to her last week and she was very knowledgeable and has treated quite a few axolotls. Thought it was a worth a post for any fellow Yorkshire herpers just in case you are struggling to find anyone, particularly in the Halifax (UK) area.

Hopefully I won't have cause to visit her with the wriggly ones, but if I do I will drop some more feedback in.

Plan a long visit, she is wonderful and fascinating - and loves to talk!

I wish I'd seen this 2 weeks ago would have saved me a hunt for a vet! Johanna is now seeing to my axolotl, I found a recommendation for her on a reptile forum.

Default Re: Looking for a Vet?

thank you for posting this - it literally SAVED my sick axie...turns out there was a herp vet within 15 minutes from my home on here and they were even open today...my axie swallowed a large stone and couldn't pass it ..... she had prolapsed as well and hadn't eaten in weeks...she hasn't eaten before, but when I finally saw her bottom side I knew she was in trouble. for now, I hope we got to her in time...she is home and now has to recoup. but without this, I don't think she would have made it.

LOVE this site....thank you!!!:l ove:

I recommend my local exotics vets:

Trinity vet centre next door to Maidstone hospital (Kent UK)
They specialise in small animals and exotics of all kinds - amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, as well as the regular cats, dogs and bunnies.

There are 3 highly experienced exotic vets there, they train vets too, and their prices are reasonable.

I called at lunchtime, got an appointment for 4pm, it cost me 45 for a consultation and medication - and a free lesson in how to inject the medication.
