As a rule, only certain lizards are good for beginners. Many species have fairly complex care requirements for heating, lighting and diet.

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "We are so thankful for the care and patience provided by Care Animal Clinic. We had a very shy and fearful foster pup who could not be handled easily. The staff took at least 30 minutes out of her day to sit on the floor and slowly acclimate our pup to her touches. Most other offices I've been to have not been willing to go through the effort to make dogs comfortable like that. I would highly recommend Care Animal Clinic to anyone whether your pup is friendly or if they need a little special help like ours did."
