Are You Practicing Proper Quarantine Procedures?

It's always exciting to acquire a new animal, and expand a collection, but do you practice proper quarantine procedures before introducing the new acquisition to the rest of your collection?
It is a very necessary, but often overlooked practice.
Maybe this is because of inexperience, or perhaps despite a wealth of years of experience, you've decided to skip quarantine this time because your new addition comes from a trusted source. Unfortunately there are numerous pathogens/parasites that could remain dormant until the right stress conditions allow them to take over a host while the immune system is compromised. This can have devastating and unexpectated consequences to your collection.

Do you know the ERAS Mission Statement?

OBJECTIVE: The Edmonton Reptile and Amphibian Society (ERAS) was founded in 1994. Our objectives are the promotion of the study and conservation of reptiles and amphibians and the facilitation of communication between society members. These goals are to be met through the publication of a society journal, the procuring of lecturers in herpetology, and the provision of opportunities for members to meet and discuss herpetological topics.
