    Dr. Barghusen's love is frogs, but he sees all reptiles. He is pretty good and great to talk to. He is easy to work with and has an open mind. I think there are other vets with more in depth knowledge about reptiles, but he is eager and willing to learn and great for basic needs...fecal checks, xrays etc..

    Dr. Shelton sees most every herp, and she does housecall's, really great for my BIG snakes. She is willing to consult with other vets when something is unusual, too. Which is way better than other vets I worked with who just muddled through on their own. She goes into the cities and way out into a lot of the burbs. She owns her own iguana too. (12/01/03)

    Janell Osborn, DVM
    South St. Paul, MN
    Tel: (651) 455-6540
    This vet does house calls only. She also studied under John A. Neuman and often uses his facilities to do her tests and lab work. She is a bit pricy since she charges for mileage, but I have also found her to be the most up to date on new medical procedures and to have the most connections to other vets to find answers to medical problems.
