I have treated many lizards including iguanas, bearded
dragons and chameleons. I have treated many kinds of snakes and a few
turtles. (04/15/04) Vet self-recommended.
DM - Dr. McDonald has seen my
green Iguana (Puff) and my Bearded Dragon (Velcro) through respiratory
infections. She is great with Herps in general care. She also has seen my
dogs. Dr McDonald is caring and seems to like her job. I would highly
recommend Dr. McDonald to you. (01/11/07)
John Edwards, DVM
Lakeshore Veterinary Hospital
155 Moores Rd.
Mandeville, LA 70471
L&AB - We had simultaneous emergencies with two of our pets - a
young Chamaeleo Trioceros Rudis and an Agalychnis callidryas (red-eyed tree
frog). Because all of the exotic vets in our area were unavailable,
Midwest Bird and Exotic Hospital squeezed me in. Dr. Edwards spent two
hours asking questions, testing, and doing lab work on our two little
ones. I was relieved to leave their office with two accurately diagnosed
pets and an aggressive course of treatment to continue at home. I only
wish my (human) children's doctors were as thorough diagnosticians as
Dr. Edwards and the MBEAH staff! (09/08/03)

Virginia Brookings, DVM
Brookings Animal Hospital
4919 North Market Street
Shreveport, LA 71107
Tel: (318) 425-4860
Dr. Brookings is the most knowledgeable and helpful
veterinarian in town! She has helped us (here at Sci-Port) with skinks,
geckos, snakes, alligators, frogs, turtles, and our three-toed amphiuma.
She will be present to offer her support and comments for our exotic pets
workshop (On reptile and amphibian pets) that we are offering this
Saturday. She is the kind of vet I trust and depend on. I want to be like her.
Sincerely, RD, Naturalist, Sci-Port Discovery Center. (11/19/01)
