I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello my name is ***** ***** I'm a vet in the UK for small pets. As no other experts have responded I can assume there are not exotic or herpetic vets available. I am not a specialist myself but I'm happy to try and help you find one.
