We have a holistic approach towards the treatment of animals in our care.

We look at the whole animal for example its diet, husbandry, environment and not just its presenting symptoms.

The majority of problems are caused by incorrect  diet & husbandry.

At Currumbin Valley Veterinary Surgery we place a great emphasis on the education of our clients to make them more aware of the special needs and requirements of their pets.

It is always a good idea to take your pythons into a reptile vet for a health check and viral testing especially when purchasing a new snake.

The sunshine virus is a virus common among pythons and can be difficult to diagnose without pathological testing. Snakes can be asymptomatic and show no evidence of the virus for many years and can spread it to others if strict hygiene standards aren’t maintained.
As you can see in pictures 3 & 4, swab samples are taken from the mouth and cloaca to be sent off for testing.
Photos from Currumbin Valley Birds, Reptiles & Exotics Vet's post Pet parrots are commonly affected by metal toxicity because they are attracted to shiny things. Poultry (ducks and chooks etc) can also succumb to heavy metal poisoning. When they peck and scratch around in the dirt, they are also attracted to shiny things and swallow stray bits of metal (nuts, bolts, wire, nails etc). Little Miss Maggie Moo, was presented to our surgery, very weak and unable to walk. An X-ray showed she had swallowed a metal washer. She was admitted to hospital for a week of intensive treatment for metal toxicity and responded very well.
