  • K - Richard works very well with herps,having completed his training by working at the Toronto Zoo with many species of Reptile.He and his staff are very knowledgable,courteous, and reasonable. Richard has treated many of my herps,including Emeralds,Ammies,many Colubrids.He is also our family vet for our regular pets(cat-diabetic,American Pitbull Terrier,etc.) (02/20/01)
  • My leopard gecko was severely ill with a neurological disease and almost died. Dr. Maser was excellent, he examined her thoroughly and was obviously very at home with herps. Her treatment consisted of a series of injections of different drugs, for which I visited the hospital regularly. The price for all this was very reasonable, and best of all my gecko has recovered. I believe that Dr. Maser also treats the reptiles at the Indian River Reptile Zoo (over 200 herps on display). We also use him for our other animals (dogs and cat). (07/26/02)

    DM - I took my female corn snake to him because she had a lump near her vent. Luckily it was only fattie deposits as she is about 100 grams over weight. We did a needle aspir and a fecal. This man took time to come in even though he was on vacation to look at my snake and give me peace of mind. He was wonderful with her and I would recommend him to anyone in the area. He has snakes of his own and seems to really have a natural love for herps. (08/22/04)

    Practice specializes in exotic pets. They are a well established service that are widely known in the Ontario veterinary community. They strive to educate the public on the care and wellness of the exotics that are presented to them.
    I was so fortunate to have found this clinic when I first got my iguana from a local pet store. I was told to feed him lettuce and water and was sent off to fend for him and myself. After researching this animal, I found and took him to Dr. Axelson where I was pointed on a path that was both beneficial and educational. My iguana is now a healthy 2 year old. He hates his semi annual vet trips but I keep telling him that they probably saved his life. Thanks Dr. Axelson and your colleagues and staff at the clinic.(07/02/02)
