Lizards, snakes and chelonians make up an extremely large and diverse group of reptiles with thousands of different species found throughout the world, adapted to a large variety of climates, habitats, and natural diets.Their anatomy and physiology can therefore vary considerably between different groups with each species adapted to its natural environment. Consequently, different species can have extremely different environmental and nutritional requirements, often difficult to reproduce satisfactorily in captivity. This, coupled with their ability to survive without showing obvious signs of illness, can present a challenge for the veterinary surgeon having to make general recommendations.This course is aimed at providing basic and practical tools for the general practitioner dealing with reptiles from the initial clinical approach to common clinical techniques. It also discusses how to anaesthetise reptiles safely and approach these patients from a surgical standpoint.Topics to be covered include:Clinical approach to the reptile patient (including physical exam, identification of more common species, handling and common clinical techniques)Top tips for optimal radiographic positioningReptile surgery and patient careAnaesthesia: how to anaesthetise reptiles safely in practice
