    Hi, I’m from Philadelphia as well. What vet charges $172 just for the visit? Good to know prices. This is the place my husband used in the past. The visit was under$100 here. https://www.vet.upenn.edu/giving/don...no-prince-here

    That’s exactly where I took my chameleon. It was crazy expensive and that’s where they said it was 172 just to bring them in not including everything...

    Was this link your story here? And that was under 100$ that’s nuts! We got ripped off big time! I took my Jackson’s chameleon in for worms and other meds and they charged us over 500$ and he still passed away a week later... so then when I called about taking my little gecko in, I didn’t even say what we needed yet and they said the same thing that it’s 172$ just to bring them in...

    No I meant to post their main page linked that accidentally cuz I had just finished reading it. I just asked about exotic pet insurance because it seems worth it. I will definitely look into it further. My husband end up paying thousands in the past on vet care. Hope your banded gecko heal up nicely🙂

    Just wanted to make a correction. The first visit is $119, then follow up are $62. Hubby kept taking in half dead lizards☹️

    Ugh again I thought she was getting better and now she keeps biting her back and ripping the skin off. It’s freaking me out. She clamped on until she pissed herself. I really want to take her to the vet but I have no money right now. I’ve been struggling this week with money and of course that’s when things get bad. I feel so bad for this creature I need to help her and I don’t know what to do... will an emergency vet help her with me not having money? I don’t know what to do.

    Her legs and bottom of her back and feet are torn apart from her biting herself. I can’t stop crying. I want to just take her to the vet but I only know one, i don’t have money to take her, and after I took my chameleon and he still died I’m so afraid.

    Well they raised the price. It’s 172 now and I can’t even afford that. I’m just worried she’s gonna die either way or do they put down reptiles if they’re suffering? How do they even tell if she is? I feel so bad. I don’t have the money right now to handle this and it’s making me feel even worse..

    I believe they can euthanize a reptile, and in this case, maybe that would be the kindest thing. She does need treatment of some kind, and it that's not possible, then ending her pain would be a kindness.

    You've done the best you can under the circumstance, and this is a difficult case. I hope it won't deter you from having another reptile, but next time, hopefully it will be healthy from the get-go, and don't do it until 1) you feel good about having another one, and 2) have some extra money put aside for emergencies. I will say though, that is a LOT to ask for just walking in the door. Probably because exotics vets are hard to find in your area.

    This is just a thought, but in another thread, someone suggested raw honey for a wound on the nose. I'm wondering if that might help with this? It might be worth a try if you can find some.
