The Reptile Series provides information on a variety of herpetological species and how to take care of them: the right kind of housing, temperature, food, lights, and veterinarian. Turtles, snakes, iguanas, lizards, and geckos all have different needs from anything that was born wearing fur. Keeping a reptile happy and healthy isn't difficult, but it helps to have a resource you can trust. Melissa Kaplan, author of Iguanas for Dummies, wrote the Reptile Series for Veterinary Partner.

Ease Pet Stress
Our bodies are built to heal, and given the right opportunities, they usually do. We are constantly confronting a dizzying array of pathogens. If we are healthy, we have a good chance of fending off these disease-causing agents. Our normal defense mechanisms keep our body's systems humming happily. This is as true in pets as it is in people.

Tortoise Foraging Mix
You can plant a garden so that your tortoise will have fresh produce that doesn't come from the grocery store within his or her own pen.

Iguana Salad - the Basic Salad
The basic salad provides a significant amount of the protein, calcium, and fiber that iguanas require. The recipe is in this article. It is made from fresh, raw vegetables including at least one green and one orange vegetable, parsnip, alfalfa, and a fruit.

Pet Preparedness
Hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, tornadoes, wildfires and even man-made disasters have brought home to us all in recent years that a crisis can happen at any time, in any community. Just as you can't leave preparing for your human family members to chance, you need a plan to ensure the safety of your pets.

SI and U.S. Standard Measurements: Conversion Confusion
SI is the modernized version of the metric system of measurement. It is the language universally used in science and medicine. SI is an abbreviation from the French Système International d’Unités, or International System of Units.

VetzInsight: A Different Place to Learn
The same folks who provide Veterinary Partner also offer a blog called VetzInsight. Rather than explain what occurs in a disease process and how to treat it - which was Veterinary Partner offers - our goal is not only to inform on larger issues but to tap into the numerous emotions at play within the human-animal bond. We're here to learn and have fun. If you're interested in learning more about a broader look at veterinary medicine, the veterinarians, the clients, and the patients, VetzInsight is a great learning experience.
