  • V - Dr. Smith sees several iguanas and has owned them. She seems very knowledgeable with a genuine interest on what kind of care you have for your iguana. I took my iguana to her for a general checkup. I brought in a fecal for testing, she drew up bloodwork, and gave him an complete onceover. She moved cautiously around him so as not to frighten him. She knew to pull on his dewlap to get him to open his mouth (some do not and try to force the mouth open with a tongue depressor) and squirt liguid in the side of mouth. I will continue to go to her even though she is 1 1/2 hours away from me. (09/29/01)
  • SH - We take our snakes to Dr. Smith. She is very professional and shows a lot of concern. If she is unsure about something, she will research it to find the answer. I am comfortable take all of our snakes (currently over 100) to her and will continue to do so. (06/03/02)
