Specialty Services for Your Exotic Pets

Regardless of species, we recommend annual wellness exams for every patient. Exotic pet care exams include a complete health check and conversation regarding husbandry, nutrition, handling, habitat, and other factors that determine their quality of life. If you notice any sign of disease or illness in your pet, please bring it to our attention immediately. What appears to be a minor infection, or a small cold can escalate very quickly.

  • Beak and Nail Trims

  • Sick visits including (but not limited to) ears, eyes, skin, inappetence & lethargy
