How to Take Care of a Pet Turtle with Dr. Alix Wilson

Learn about veterinarian Alix Wilson, one of Howcast's turtle experts, in this video.


My name is Alix Wilson, and I'm a veterinarian. I work with exotic pets here in New York City at a hospital called The Center for Avian and Exotic Medicine. I've been practicing for about eight years.

The term, exotic pets, actually refers to an animal that is not a dog or a cat, so we actually see a range of reptiles, amphibians, small mammals, and birds, and many other types of animals as well. I did my veterinary school training, the first part of it in the Caribbean. And I did my fourth clinical year at Louisiana State University.
