Dr. Catherine Love DVM is a 2020 veterinary graduate out of Indiana. In this episode, Dr. Love explains how vets specialize in reptile medicine and how they stay up-to-date with new husbandry recommendations. We also discuss the myth that “vets don’t know anything about caring for reptiles”, Dr. Love speculates why that myth exists and why it is not true (in most cases). We also chat about common ailments seen in the clinic including, MBD, nidovirus, and cryptosporidium.
