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

Form what I am seeing $45.00 is low end of cost of reptile visit. A lot of vets automatically worm. Worms arent shed at all times in the feces, but I personally think it is a poor practice. This isnt to say it isnt common, I just dont do it.I think sticking meds into an animal with no reason is just plain silly. Plus the fact that there are so many different dewormers available for different types of worms.

I believe on the other forum, MarkM also told you he didnt believe in deworming. While I believe in deworming, I want worms present before I give meds.
