Okay so I don't really trust any reptile vets. I bought a boa a while ago, and I took him to the vet and found out he had lower lung ri and got medicine. But he died the next day. I only owned him a week so is lost over $600 on the snake. I don't mind though cause I love snakes I feel better that I got him out of that bad situation and gave him a fighting chance. I just got a dwarf retic and am worried about him having ri too or something else... I'm for sure going to take him to a reptile vet but I don't know which one. All the vets on the vet recommendation page thing are like 9 hours away from me. I know there is reptile vets in my area but my area doesn't have a large reptile enthusiast group and no one reviews the reptile vets. I'm not saying the the vet I used is wrong or bad, I'm just saying I don't know if I can trust them and use them. Y'know??? How can I know a reptile vet is a good one? And one more question, should I take my retic in while he is shedding? Well at least it looks like he's shedding, his eyes are blue and his colors are dull looking. I've only owned him a week and 6 of those days I was out of town and my dad cared for him.
