AS reptiles continue to gain popularity as pets, their owners' expectations of their veterinary care are increasing. The expansion in the general knowledge of reptile husbandry, medicine and surgery has resulted in the provision of a comparable level of veterinary care for reptilian patients as is already available for dogs and cats. The aim of this article is to introduce the practitioner to reptiles, and to provide details on taking a comprehensive history and performing a thorough clinical examination that will point the clinician towards further laboratory and ancillary tests and that previously elusive diagnosis.
