Yes, that seems to be the standard practice.

I recently had a herp die for no apparent reason. Took it to my exotic vet for necropsy, which was inconclusive. She contacted a zoo vet in California and the local Vet School (UW Madison, which has two or three exotics vets on staff) to try to get more answers.

Those inquiries and the pathology we sent out came back negative, but she did a good amount of leg work for an animal that was already dead. We don't know all the details of the present situation, but this is true: any vet who won't even research dosing protocol for an animal for which there is hope of recovery shouldn't be practicing.
