Area By Area (& country) Vet list


New Member
Brads vet sticky is great, but dosent really address folks needs here, dosent get noticed/used.

Rather than link google search results which may or may not be useful,
how about you folk get together and write upCountry, Your area and Vet details, to form an ongoing 'by area' list of herp vets.

Mods could delete out the various useless posts that will appear in it, to keep it a 'clean' thread, Or could be PM'd with a listing to add , and keep it locked.
I see so many folk asking for a vet listing in specific areas, I thought it might be more useful than the current sticky.

Seems to be a crucial resource that is lacking. Lets make it better! :)
The attached pdf file contains a list of the veterinarians suggested within this thread. For convenience the vets are grouped by state and city. Other information such as hospital name, doctor name and date of referral are also included. This should be great for members that are looking for a qualified chameleon vet in their area. Over time the file will be updated periodically as new suggestions are posted. A big thank you to @elizaann2 for creating this resource.

Do you know a great veterinarian with real chameleon experience? We would love to hear about it.

Accredited reptile vets Drs R Beasley and Nolan; Dr. C Beasley is a bird vet (small animal practice as well)

Chameleon experience; they do all the veterinary work for Preuss Pets, a good local petstore with a large reptile selection.

in Louisville, KY the hospital I work for is Shively Animal Clinic and my wonderful vet/boss/friend is Dr. Mary Jane Fuchs. We are a family owned & operated animal hospital Dr. Mary Jane works there with her father Dr. Richard Fuchs who started the practice and with her 3 other siblings and 5 other vets. We are the only hospital in the Louisville area that sees exotics 24 hour a day.

Chicago Area Reptile Vet

Here's a great Chicago area reptile vet: There are many vets here that claim that they are an "exotic" vet, however in the Chicagoland area, there are only 2 of them that I would trust with any reptile, including all of my chams (and they take emergencies). Here is the one I go to. Since we are not "Cham Central USA", he has good connections/colleagues that he contacts for further information and/or questions and he is open-minded and is not opposed to taking cham advice/suggestions from a breeder with experience (i.e. many times, we have talked about stuff/suggestions on the forum).
