Reptile Handling and Restraint

Use LafeberVet's NEW Reptile Handling and Restraint series to train staff or as a clinical refresher. These three review articles, rich in photos and some video clips, explore the basics of restraint for turtles and tortoises, lizards, and snakes.

NEW Chelonian Handling and Restraint

Healthy turtles and tortoises can be challenging to restrain because they are often extremely strong and very uncooperative. This NEW article Chelonian Handling and Restraint* reviews recommendations for transport to the veterinary hospital, chelonian defense mechanisms, capture and handling, as well as restraint techniques, particularly for gaining control of the head.   

NEW Lizard Handling and Restraint

Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures cannot be administered until you and your staff can safely handle and restrain the lizard patient. NEW Lizard Handling and Restraint* reviews the basics, including patient transport and defense mechanisms as well as protective gear and restraint techniques. This article contains a variety of helpful images shared by Erica Mede, CVT.

NEW Snake Handling and Restraint

Although some veterinary professionals are more hesitant to deal with snakes than other pet reptiles, snakes are often the easiest reptile patients to capture and restrain in clinical practice. NEW Snake Handling and Restraint* uses a collection of text, illustrative photos, and brief video clips to review snake transport, capture, handling, as well as restraint techniques, and potential complications.
