How do you find a good vet?


Original Poster
Hello all,

I'm looking for a vet for my future beardie. We recently lost our beloved scaly little one, and the vet I had taken him to seemed... a little out of date with some of her info. We've decided to get a new dragon but I don't know if I want to take them to the same place. I tried searching online, and in these forums, but I haven't really found any good advice on how you know if your vet is a good one or not. So I guess I'm wondering if this info would be helpful for other people too.

How do you "shop" for a good vet?
Can you just book an appointment with one and ask them some questions? Is that weird?
What kinds of questions should you ask?
What kind of info beyond "has treated bearded dragons" should you look for on a vet clinic's website?
What are some red flags this vet may not be a good fit?

Any insight you could share would be helpful :) Thanks in advance!

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
