Have you had the pleasure of having Dr. Hartzler see one of your animal yet???

Dr. Hartzler was born and raised in Wisconsin and received her veterinary degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine in 2020. Dr. Hartzler knew she wanted to pursue exotic animal medicine after completing a wildlife rehabilitation internship during her undergraduate studies. She loves working with non-traditional veterinary species and learning about the various adaptations species have developed to help them thrive in their environments.

During veterinary school Dr. Hartzler did research evaluating the efficacy of opioid medications in reptiles. She also worked with the veterinary team at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center, providing medical care to the rhesus macaque colony. She also served as the International Veterinary Studentsโ€™ Association representative for Wisconsin for 3 years, attending congresses around the world to help further veterinary education worldwide. In her final year of veterinary training, Dr. Hartzler completed rotations at a number of renowned zoos and wildlife rehabilitation facilities.

After graduation Dr. Hartzler completed an intensive small animal rotating internship at MSPCA Angell โ€“ West in Waltham, Massachusetts where she saw a high caseload of cat, dog, and exotic emergencies, internal medicine, and surgery cases, as well as spending time with other specialty departments. Knowing her passion is exotic and zoological species, Dr. Hartzler joined the SEAVS team to pursue further training to prepare for a career in zoological medicine.

In her free time Dr. Hartzler loves to travel, figure skate, read, and snuggle with her rescue cat, Schatzi.

Have you met Dr. Duthie-Brown?

Dr. Lauren Duthie-Brown graduated top of her class from the University of Queensland (Australia) in 2018. From there she worked as an Associate Veterinarian in a busy avian and exotic clinic in Adelaide, Australia for 17 months. Dr. Duthie-Brown was the 2020-2021 Veterinary Intern at the Fort Wayne Childrenโ€™s Zoo in Fort Wayne, Indiana before moving to Northern Virginia to undertake her internship here at SEAVS.

Dr. Duthie-Brown is a Michigan native, who grew up dreaming of being a vet. Life took her to Australia in 2007 after completion of her Bachelor of Arts degree from Albion College in Michigan. There she undertook a Master of Business degree focusing on International Business and Human Resources before working in the Queensland State government.

Veterinary medicine was always at the back of her mind, however, and she went back to school in 2012 to complete her veterinary degree. In Australia, Dr. Duthie-Brown gained a wealth of knowledge and experience with Australian native animals and developed a professional interest in anesthesia in exotic animals. Dr. Duthie-Brown loves working with all the creatures of the world, but especially loves birds and reptiles.

In her free-time, Dr. Duthie-Brown enjoys hiking and exploring Northern Virginia with her husband, Josh, and 9-year-old greyhound, Harry.

Itโ€™s important to us that our patients are involved in their own care. Dr. Traina got a helping hand from her sugar gilder patient! Did you know that some species have behaviors that you can work on at home to get them more comfortable with vet visits?

More wildlife that ate something it shouldn't have.๐Ÿฅบ This time it is a mallard duck with a fish hook.
This is a common problem for ducks and you really do have to be careful when fishing around them. This little one even had a bobber hanging from her beak when she first arrived at a local wildlife center!๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿฆ†

Edit to add: The duck recovered well and went to wildlife rehab the day after the procedure. She will be released in a couple weeks once her incision is healed. ๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹ A little reminder about salmonella safety and reptile pets from the CDC. "Stop kissing that lizzzzzard!"๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐ŸฆŽ๐ŸฆŽ๐ŸฆŽ

Have a pet beardie? Beardies, or bearded dragons, can sometimes carry Salmonella germs, even if they look healthy and clean. CDC has investigated multiple Salmonella outbreaks linked to bearded dragons. You can stay healthy by taking these steps:

-๐Ÿคฒ Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water right after touching your beardie, its food and water, its supplies, and the area where it lives and roams.
-๐Ÿงผ Clean your beardieโ€™s supplies outside the house when possible. If you clean them indoors, do not use the kitchen sink. Use a laundry sink or bathtub, and disinfect the area right after.
-๐Ÿšซ Donโ€™t kiss your beardie or let it roam in areas where food is prepared, served, or stored. Germs can get into your mouth and make you sick.

Remember our opportunistic black rat snake friend from yesterday? Well he had a little surgery today! Scroll through for some pictures of the procedure and scroll to the last picture to see him curled up and recovering for the night. We will keep him here at SEAVS to monitor for a few days before he gets transferred to a local rehabilitator.

I called earlier about a injured animal. We finally were able to catch it. Do you have emergency hours?
Posting this as a board member of the VA Herpetological Society: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella illness linked to contact with pet bearded dragons. More information about the outbreak is available here. At least one Virginia resident has become ill in association with this outbreak. As such, the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and state partner agencies have been helping support the outbreak investigation and subsequent public health response. ................ Please practice good hygiene around beardies and all pets.
As the orginal owner and breeder, I would like to reach out and personally thank the team that tried to save Colby the Sebastopol Goose. You all tried your very best with many unknowns. Thank you for your communication with the owner and your dedication to doing your best.
