Iguana Health

For all that iguanas are a large, powerful looking lizard, they can be very susceptible to injury and illness, especially if not given the proper care. This section covers some of the most common health issues for iguanas. One of the best ways to keep your iguana healthy is to find a good reptile vet BEFORE you need one! Don't wait until an emergency to find a herp vet. It is often difficult to find a vet experienced in dealing with reptiles. To find a veterinarian in your area, check out the Herp Vet Connection and the ARAV page. Be sure to read the section on what to ask your vet before starting your search. It is also a good idea to take your iguana for a vet check at least once a year while healthy - it helps your vet become familiar with your animal and develop a 'baseline' to compare against when your animal does become ill.
