Question Finding a good vet

I've dealt with vet's before, but always with a cat, or dog. But alot of vet's don;t have a clue when it comes to reptiles. So my question is this, how do you find a good vet that knows about reptiles, what kinda questions should you ask...etc

Any info to weed out an inferior vet would be appreciated.

PS not that I have any sick animals, I just want to know of a good vet, before I have that problem

IMO the best way to find a *good* herp vet is word of mouth.

Here is a link. herp vet connection
Check here and then ask at your local herp store. If the person is on the list and given by the store you are probally ok.

My problem with the ARAV is that all the vet need to do is pay a fee and they are on the list. With all the vets that clam to be reptile vets I prefer on the recomendation of others that have used them not there self serving interests.
