Why you should handle your iguana
If you are bringing an iguana into your home, you’re likely aware of the fact that most of them don’t really seek out their owners to be held. Why should you make a point to pick your pet up?
Your pet needs to get used to being handled as she will need to be picked up from time to time. She will need to be moved from one area to another, particularly when you are cleaning her enclosure, and she will also need to be held for veterinary exams. Getting her used to this type of interaction can help make these endeavors a bit easier. Since your pet knows and trusts you, she will be more likely to be receptive to you handling her than others. Help her gradually get used to this by holding her for short periods of time every now and then. For more information, please contact your local Sale Creek, TN vet.
