I have posted this in the rock iguana forum but didn't get much reply. But I think it's relevant here too.

Today I took my 4 month old Grand Cayman hybrid iguana for a vet visit. He is nice and healthy, eating well and growing. I just wanted to get a fecal test done on him just to make sure doesn’t have worms or something bad. But once I saw the vet he said it is better to get him dewormed which cost me 70.00 (25 for dewormed and 45 for visit). My question is “is this what everyone else experience when they take their iguana to the vet for the first time or did the vet wanted to make more instead of just doing a fecal test.” Plus at 4 month old isn’t he too young to be dewormed. On top of that the vet automatically assumed he was wild caught even after I told him the iguana was from David Blair. Just want to make sure he will be fine after the deworm meds. Any input will be greatly appreciated.
