    Dr Tristan Rich is the exotics, native wildlife and reptiles vet. I'm not a huge fan of Lort Smith as a whole, but Tristan has provided great care, and the location is pretty good for anyone in inner Melbourne.

    Thanks Newts. I'm in the inner North and am mighty sick of that drive to Karingal!! (Even though I've only done it twice!). Shane offers boarding services for reptiles. Anyone know of any other places that offer this? Or even home visiting services for when you're on holiday?

    Dr Karen Davies did a great job of patching up a wild Eastern Long Neck Turtle for me that had been run over by a lawn mower and has been first class in other treatment services I've required.

    Hi folks, here's the national list of specialist vets from the AAVAC (avian) vets - the majority of these do exotics including reptiles as well, but obviously if the practice name is "XXX Bird clinic" or similar then they are only likely to do birds :)

    http://www.aavac.com.au/find_an_avian_veterinarian.html

    Doesn't include vets that do only reptile or non-avian exotics unfortunately, and there are a number of those around too.

    Best Vet I've found in the Perth Metro so far, though arguably not the cheapest. They also offer 24/7 emergency care.
    They've looked after my cats & family's dogs for the past decade, and I wouldn't hesitate to bring my Woma to them, should the need arise.

    I second that Wally. They have since added a 2nd reptile vet Sarah, and a 3rd joining in the new year.
    Awesome for me to have such great service on the doorstep.
