If you own an exotic pet, you know that it can be difficult to find a veterinarian to care for it. Exotic pets require unique care that is different from the veterinary care that cats and dogs need. At Pleasant View Veterinary Clinic, we provide veterinary care for exotic pets. Serving Mifflintown and Lewistown, PA, our veterinarian can diagnose and treat your exotic pet. We will also guide you on how to care for your pet’s specific needs.
What Are Exotic Pets?
The term exotic pets refers to many animals, specifically non-traditional pets. Exotic pets include rodents, reptiles, fish, amphibians, and some small mammals. Our team does not care for all exotic animals, so speak with our veterinary team to see if we can help you. Some common exotic pets include rabbits, hamsters, birds, and lizards.
Caring for Exotic Pets
There are several things to consider when getting an exotic pet. Your pet will need basic veterinary care, and you will need to provide it with the proper care at home. Our vet provides wellness exams, vaccines, nutritional care, and more for exotic pets. We recommend that you bring your pet to us as soon as possible after bringing it home. That way, we can determine if it is healthy and set up a schedule for its veterinary visits.
Caring for your exotic animal is also your responsibility as a pet owner. Pets like lizards need special food to stay healthy. Exotic pets may also need cages and special environments. You may need to groom or care for your pet’s hygiene as well.
