I didn't *have* to. It wasn't sick or anything like that. But I did have a few areas of concern, such as what I thought was discoloration around the gills, and some other oddness around the gills. I was just wanting a vet to look at it and see if it was healthy or not. Being a new pet that I just got a couple months ago, I mostly just wanted a general check up. The vet was able to tell me my axolotl is a female, though. I didn't know the sex before, and figuring that out was one of the things I asked the vet for.

How old is it?? You generally can not distinguish until they are like 12-18 months as that’s when they become sexually mature... and the females just have a bigger lump kind of shape near their rear end lol

I'm not entirely sure how old it is. I got it from an exotic pet store and they didn't even know. Also part of the reason I wanted to take it to the vet; it came from an exotic pet store.

It wasn't super expensive. Just a general "new pet" checkup. I spent $50 on peace of mind. Worth it in my opinion.

Oh for sure! I would love to take mine to the vet ... like you just to “see” for a check up but I live in the boonies and even in the largest town close to me there is no one that will see one... half of them I’ve called before don’t even know what they are!! Lol!

Yeah, I get that! When I was calling around looking for vets, a few of them said "what's an axolotl?" - suffice it to say, they didn't get my business.
