Birds, Snakes, and Lizards, Oh My!


Are you interested in keeping birds or reptiles as pets? Maybe you already have one. Lots of people enjoy these animals. Schuylkill Veterinary Hospital’s own Dr Lora Mengle is an exotic pet fan and has several of her own. She also treats these animals at our Pottsville hospital. Being a veterinarian that cares for these pets takes lots of skill and experience. Luckily for her patients, Dr Mengle has both. Honestly, I know very little ¬†about the care of these animals. I do know that proper nutrition and management is vital to their health.

Fortunately, Dr Mengle will be presenting a free public seminar about  keeping birds and reptiles as pets on Thursday, May 16th at 7:30 pm. Seats may be reserved by calling 622-1098. The location is Canine Learning Center.

You may even get to meet Sobe, the bearded dragon!!!
