Exotic animals include reptiles, birds, small mammals (often grouped as pocket pets) and even some livestock bred to be pets instead of food, such as the potbellied pig. Common health issues with these animals are most often related to husbandry issues, or a failure in the care, feeding and housing of the animal. Before adopting any exotic it is very important to research the time commitment, diet, and cost of owning these often beautiful and interesting creatures. It may surprise you that many of these creatures can become ill from simple needs such as specific water delivery systems (chameleons) or vitamin or mineral supplements. Once you have adopted this new pet it’s best to bring it in for an exam. We review your care plan and make sure the new pet hasn’t acquired any issue from the move and shipping of these creatures from breeder to pet stores. We can help sex reptiles and birds as male or female since they can be differentiate. We are glad to assist you with all your exotic needs including surgery for spay or neuter.
