  • CB - After diligently searching for a competent vet to treat my iguana, I happened upon Dr. Giddings. He was recommended to me by another lizard owner whose pet iguana suffered from kidney failure. This person happily claimed that Dr. Giddings saved their reptile from the brink of death. After several visits to his practice with my own iguana, I would wholly recommend him. I have found him to be incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and articulate. He seems to truly be concerned with the health of the animal. A couple of years ago, Dr. Giddings spayed my iguana. I was very happy with the treatment he provided and her quick recovery. (04/16/02)
  • JC - I bring my russian tortoise to Dr. Giddings, he is a wonderful vet who is friendly and really cares about the animals he sees. The entire staff is knowledgeable and friendly with any animal or human! (04/04/2005)

  • MA - Where I live their are very few vet's with experience in exotics. I was lucky enough to have found this vet so close to home. he is excellent!!! I have three Water Dragons and he has allways been their to answer all my questions and goes out of his way to help with any of my problems. He explains everything in full detail and is very kind and gentile with them. I could not have found a better veterinarian. (05/30/04)
  • PD - I brought my Bearded Dragon, Maximilian, to the vet [Melliar-Smith] tonight for his first visit. What a wonderful experience. Everything I needed to know was explained to me and the doctor and her entire staff were so pleasant and helpful. Thanks to this website, the Pogona Group, and MA that added a comment on this site on 5/30/04 about this veterinary hospital. I can't be happier. I know that Maxy is in good hands! Thank you.

    Phone: (860) 295-1595
  • JG - There are multiple vets in the practice, I don't know anything about the others. I took my very sick Frog Eyed Gecko to see Dr Sean and he was amazing. He spent well over an hour with me discussing things, answering questions and explaining anything that needed to be. He seems to know reptiles and had a very good 'bedside manner'. From what I can see, their prices seem reasonable and they didn't suggest doing anything that didn't need to be done. I've also heard good things about him second hand from a bearded dragon owner, so it seems he's one of the good guys. (02/02/07)
  • S - Dr. Snyder and her staff seemed very sweet and caring. My previous experiences with vets were not good till i met the Staff at Marlborough Bird and Animal Hospital. I will be now taking all my snakes and turtles there! (05/11/07)
