Health, Illness, Injury and Stress
Many of the iguana-related articles are applicable to other types of lizards and other reptiles, so don't skip them just because you don't have a green iguana...
Care & Keeping:
The following statement may appear obvious, but given the number of people who post questions on email lists, message boards and by personal email, it bears repeating: If your herp is bleeding from a wound or internally (bloody vomit, or blood in the feces or urates), paralyzed, or has abnormal swellings on any part of its body, or may have a broken bone or shell, or has ingested a potentially toxic substance, do not post a message or send an email: get your pet to a herp vet right away.
While many of the following articles appear, at first glance, to be about green iguanas, the fact is that other types of lizards - and other reptiles - may experience the same or similar health problems. If you are looking for information for your reptile, don't skip a title here, or close an article without reading, just because it has the word "iguana" in it.
