  • K (10/02/02) HVC Note: added McKelvie based on submission
  • CK - We have been seeing Dr. Gary Nelson since he first opened his clinic in 1977. He (and other docs and staff) have seen us through many illnesses and injuries with cats, dogs, birds, rabbits, as well as our 2 iguanas. It is gratifying to see how he relates to clients and pets. As an ICU nurse, I have an awareness of some clinical conditions that all clients may not share; Dr. Nelson will always take time to answer questions, will always return a phone call, and I have complete confidence he gives my pets the best care possible. You cannot go wrong with Viscaya Prado Vet hospital for your pet's health care. (09/25/06)

  • AR: I currently live in Indiana, but just recently moved here from Florida. I have taken my mangrove and argus monitors, an emerald swift, and a ball python (as well as other animals) to Dr. Guttery, and she's wonderful! She truly cares about helping animals... my swift was dehydrated and not eating... she injected him with fluids and then she HERSELF, (not an assistant) called me a couple days later to see how he was doing... she also has a scale in the front and it's cool that you can just pop in to weigh your animal anytime you want, especially if weight is a big issue. (10/21/01)
  • AM - Took my son's 2 yr. old leopard gecko because it wasn't eating. dr. guttery was absolutely fabulous. super helpful and spent lots of time with us. turns out our leo has an intestinal parasite so hopefully she's on the mend. great veterinarian for lizards. (7/24/06)

Request her, as I don't think any of the other docs are herp oriented.

  • KR - General practice but Rex is heavily into herps. Hours 8-5 Mon-Fri (until 6:00 on Wed), 8-12 on Saturday. CO2 laser and blood analysis on site, but no imaging ultrasound. Practice shared with Patricial Lambertson, who is not a herp expert but can pinch-hit if necessary. We were referred to Rex by our previous herp vet who moved out of town. I've been extremely pleased. He has been through a variety of ailments in my (large!) snake collection, is doing most of the reptile & amphibian work for the local exotic pet store (Incredible Pets), and I've met spur-thigh tortoises in the waiting room and bearded dragons being nursed by the staff. He also keeps herps personally. Highly recommended. (07/31/02)
  • S - Dr. Rex Koester Certified Herp Vet and the other Dr see cats and dogs etc. Also other listing in Florida.I found Dr. Rex Koester from a friend on turtletimes.com. He is an extremly wonderfully Dr. Very afforable office visits. And he was wonderful with Rocky my Mississippi Map. He is certified Herp Dr. The staff was awesome, they even call you the next day to see how things are doing with your turtle etc. Highly Recommend. And what is so nice with this Dr. you have any question you can call and he will talk to you right then and there or call you back the same day. The office visit was $35 and the antibotics was $5 for a bottle. He showed you step by step what he was gonna do and even let you look under the microscope with what was wrong. So if you live in the Brevard Co, in Florida I would go see him. He is not one of the Dr's in and out. I'm very pleased!! (02/27/03)

    DS - I was absolutely impressed with Dr. Mettee, and would recommend her to anyone with reptiles or other exotics. She had a great "bedside manner" with our Bearded Dragons, and happily answered all of our questions. She proved to be very up-to-date in her knowledge and expertise. She's the only herp vet I have seen who made me feel confident and comfortable treating my animals. Definitely worth the hour drive. The facilities at Harmony are equally impressive, very clean and high tech. Dr. Mettee is also the Head Veterinarian at the Marinelife Center of Juno Beach, FL, specializing in exotic pets, birds, and wildlife medicine. Her degree is from Texas A&M, and she's a member of the Association of Reptile and Amphibian Veterinarians, the American Veterinary Medical Association, and the International Association of Aquatic Animal Medicine.

  • JO - Harbor City Animal Hospital treats all animals, but specializes in exotic animals like reptiles, ferrets, etc. They also care for the animals at the nearby Brevard Zoo. HCAH cares for our cats, ferrets, reptiles (iguanas, beardies, chameleons, etc.) and our large and small snakes. Many of these are extremely fragile high-needs animals. Their expertise is extraordinary. I would not trust another vet with any of our animals. (05/24/06)
  • SW - So far the only experience I've had is with Dr. Steve Grisby with my snake, but I can't say enough wonderful things! EXTREMELY knowledgeable about reptiles, their health and medicine. He is very much up to date on treatment, and I would DEFINEATELY recommend him to anybody. We recently moved from Daytona to Cocoa, and my vet up there, although he is extremely good with furry animals, will be the first to admit he doesn't know that much about reptiles. He HAS helped me several times (with both of using Dr. Mader's book) pull my now 13 year old iguana through a couple of different injuries and illnesses. We are very very selective about whom we take our kids to, but with Dr. Grisby being so much closer to us now, and being as impressed as my husband and I are, I do believe we'll be changing vets. He is THAT good! (04/06/07)

  • LW - She maintains a Pet Shop/Pet rental next to her clinic. In the Shop there are a few animals including an iguana and bearded dragon. They are kept in small cages with no UVB and limited diet. The dragon gets dried crickets. I brought in some super worms and mixed greens....they were surprised at the availability of "mixed greens". The attendant asked the vet about UVB and she was told to inform me that there were no light bulbs on the market that would provide such. Granted this was a year ago....I however would never bring my beardie or any other animal to the clinic. (07/31/02)

Using a combination of old school medicine with modern day techniques, he succesfully treated Tipps. She went through a remarkable recovery and is currently thriving!

Really spends the time to examine and then educate you about your specific snake. Complete handouts given on each snake. Focuses on surgery of all reptiles. Great prices for services offered. I really felt like this guy is an asset to my snake collection. (11/2/01)

  • My bearded dragon was under his care for several months. Dr. Brumfield had extensive knowledge about the care of bearded dragons, and went above and beyond what would be considered careing, helpful, and thorough medical attention. I felt that my pet was given the best medical attention possible. I honestly wish my personal doctors were so attentive and knowledgeable. The animal hospital is open 24 hours, and the entire staff (receptionists included) were absolutely a joy to be associated with. When my pet died, they sent me a condolence card and his paw prints. (03/15/02)
  • I [Cavell] am a veterinarian who enjoys herps of all kinds, in addition to avian and small mammal exotic medicine. (07/27/06) Vet self-recommended

  • J - Examined my iguana; seemed very experienced and nice. (03/23/01)
  • JM - Dr. Webster was very helpful in treating my panther chameleons. I am a chameleon breeder and I had a hard time finding a vet that I could trust until I started seeing Dr. Webster. She has not only taken blood samples for testing, but she has also treated with antibiotics and de-wormer. She is very knowledgable with reptiles and other animals (she also sees my dog Zeus). I am definately going to her for future vet visits and would recommend her to anyone with reptiles and/or other animals. (03/03/06)
  • Comments above when Dr. Webster practiced at VCA Tampa Bay Animal Hospital (Tampa) Notified by vet of practice change. (07/16/06)
