Exotic Pet Care
Providing proper medical care for exotic pets such as birds, rabbits, reptiles, amphibians, and pocket pets requires specialized training and skills. Our exotic pet patients require just as much, if not more preventive and wellness care. We recommend a wellness exam as soon as possible after you obtain your new pet. This allows us the opportunity to help you get your new family member set up with the best possible diet, care and husbandry right from the start.
Unfortunately, improper diet is too often responsible for a very high percentage of illness in avian and exotic patients. Our veterinarians and staff enjoy taking time to teach clients about proper handling, behavior, feeding and care of their pets.
Pre-purchase or pre-adoption counseling is also available and encouraged. We strongly encourage clients to call or come in so that we can help counsel you regarding the special characteristics and needs of the exotic pet you are interested in before you purchase or adopt them. This helps ensure a good match for you and your family as well as the best dietary, maintenance, hygiene and medical needs of your feathered, furred, or scaled friend.
