For anyone living in Australia, I found more up to date information about Australian herp vets: WolfWood Australian Herp Vets
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.

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.

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!!!:love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love::love:

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.

I just spent 45 minutes calling various vets (starting with my own for my cats) to find someone who is equipped to handle Axolotl's - i ended up calling a reptile store who referred me to the same place later found with this list in 10 seconds. A little late for me, but awesome post!

    its around 3 small pieces in the tank. Since i've just moved homes, my axolotl is still at my old house. Yesterday i fed him bloodworms and he missed a few. I couldnt get them out without a turkey baster and decided to let them sit because i was gonna move him to the house tomorrow. But now its late and I dont have a car and my dad wont drive me. Will he be fine?

    No, I havent. Im not really sure why he wont eat. Hes in a 1 gallon tub and still a juvenile. When i offer food he swims away from it. Does he need some extra time? or is this something I should be worried about.

    Hello everyone! I’m new in this world and i need some advices please! I have 2 axolotl babies and currently the water from the tank is from bottled water ( all parameters are good) but i want to change 50% of the water with city tap water. My question is how to change it? Do i need to get axis out, do the change, add the prime, wait (how much?) until its dechlorinated or i can add the tap water directly into the tank with axis in it, and add the prime conditioner? Thank you!!

    1. You dont need to take them out of the tank to change the water as long as you pour it in slow as to not rattle them around too much
    +1
    Unlike
  • Asmold1:
    2. add the prime to your tap water, for most conditioners the consensus is 5 minutes of waiting time

    3.After 5 minutes it should be safe to add
