I am very anxious to know if anyone has some personal insight on good vets in the Long Island area. I've gone to 3 different vets, and from what I hear Dr Heidi Hoefer and Dr Robert Monaco are the best. The latter being the last i visited. The issue is that he and the other 2 vets I've seen all seem to just have less than positive outlooks on successfully keeping chameleons and pretty much seem to write them off as death sentences waiting to happen. Dr Monaco even suggested I should try a bearded dragon instead!! (I CANT SEE WHY I WOULD EVER DO THAT?!) It might just be me but its a little unsettling and leads me to question their reliability when it comes to taking a cham to them. If anyone with a personal experience with Dr Hoefer can shed some light as to what kind of vet she is, or with any other vet that might be available as a reliable option here in the NY area can offer a word of advice. Thanks!
