If you could not find an approved vet or clinic in your area on our list (and chances are you couldn't, because our list is still being compiled), we are providing links to other sites that list vets and clinics that treat iguanas and other herps. There are many sites that list herp vets, but we feel that this list is the best of the rest. Good luck in your search for a good vet for your iguana. Finding a trustworthy and experienced vet that treats iguanas can be difficult. Don't give up and don't settle for an inexperienced vet, unless of course, you are in an emergency situation. If you still can't find a good vet, please contact us and we will try our best to help you in your search.
Herp Vet Connection - This list has been compiled with the help of herp owners who have had good experiences with the veterinarians listed and have personally recommended them. This list was started by a few people from one of the iguana forums. One of the creators of this list is Joan Appell, the owner of Sneakers the iguana. Joan was kind enough to let us use the fantastic photo of Sneakers on our website's home page. This list should be very helpful and will get much better with more recommendations from happy clients. Because of the fact that the vets listed were recommended by satisfied clients, they suggest that you thoroughly interview the listed vets and make your own decision on their experience and reliability.
Herp Veterinarians - by Melissa Kaplan is another excellent source of herp vet listings.

VetQuest - This is a veterinary search and referral service where you can search through over 25,000 veterinary hospitals and clinics in the United States, Canada and Europe.
