Why is it, because you ask questions some places people automatically ASSUME you don't take your animal to the vet?????
On another board, a wellknown iguana mailing list, I've been asking questions about my gravid iggy. Never do I get a straight answer, but "take her to the vet..." repeated without the questions answered.
I have taken her to the flippin vet.....I've spent $300 on this lizard in the past week. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. All I want is what's best for my baby, and to learn as much as I can about her situation.
How do we learn? by asking questions.
Yes, I know some people just don't want a vet bill.
BUT please DON'T ASSUME just because someone asks a question, that they have not taken their animal to the vet.
BTW: all my questions here are answered, and without assumptions. Thank you.
