Veterinary medicine for exotic pets is growing as the popularity of these animals increases. When pet owners have access to the best information about nutritional and environmental management, exotic pets have a greater chance to live longer, healthier lives. If you own one of these unique pets, we encourage you to schedule a complete physical examination and consultation on proper care and feeding.
Each species have unique needs. It is important to understand a species native habitat in order to replicate its needs as a pet. Husbandry (how a pet is housed and cared for) is the most important factor when caring for these pets. It is important to learn as much as you can prior to acquiring a pet, so you can provide the best life possible for it. Many common household materials may be toxic to your exotic pet. Teflon is an example that has been known to cause toxic respiratory insult to birds.
Dr. Sheila and our dedicated staff have experience working with species ranging from rabbits and guinea pigs to lizards, snakes, turtles, chickens and turkeys.
