For all the Essex people here the new pets at home at pipps hill retail park have got a new vets inside opening tomorrow.Companinon care vets, the same company in the pitsea store who are brilliant with my cat and dog.

Anyway if you register before tomorrow (Thursday 28th) you get your first consultation free :D

They are doing reptiles in this one but wont have any specialist equitment yet so they can do a check up and medicine but that is it.Iam taking Spike there on friday as its free and she has not been seen by a vet.I shall let you all know how i find it.

Good luck. My local P.A.H. is having a vets installed, but whilst the works being carried out they seem to have just left whatever tubs of live food die on the shelves. I'm not a fan of that place but will pop back to check the vets out.

Well it was ok.

He told me i should have a bowl of water in her viv for her to bathe in as she chooses,but apart from that she is in perfect condition.Right weight,skins good and she looks nice and healthy.

BUT he was scared of her!!!Surely a vet should not be scared of animals?

Also if she looks healthy (especially her skin) what's the need for water?
Either way, good result.

Water is a "just in case" option and I do suggest that a small bowl be available to them. Having said that 99.99% never go near it, get all the fluids they need from veg & live food and just use the water bowl to shovel sand into before traipsing it all over the viv!
