What Are Exotic Pets?
The term exotic pets refers to animals that are not commonly kept as pets. Traditional pets are dogs, cats, and small farm animals. Exotic pets may include rodents, fish, reptiles, amphibians, or small mammals, like rabbits. Our veterinary team cares for a limited group of exotic pets.

Veterinary Care for Exotic Pets
We understand the needs of exotic pets, as they often have unique requirements. We are experienced in handling exotic pets and providing them with the high level of care and attention they deserve. They can have unique health care needs, ranging from nutrition to vaccinations. We provide routine wellness exams for exotic pets, and also offer preventative care and emergency care.
One of our goals with exotic pet care is to educate pet owners so they can take good care of their pets at home throughout the year.
Providing your exotic pet with the proper housing and environment is a vital step in ensuring the physical and mental health of your pet. We can guide you on the housing requirements of your exotic pet. For example, fish need tanks big enough for their size. Reptiles may need heat lamps. If you own a rodent, such as a rabbit or a hamster, you need to provide it with enough room to roam around in its cage.
The nutritional requirements of exotic pets can also be very different from those of traditional pets. You might struggle to find ready-made food items for exotic pet. Our veterinarian will guide you on what nutrients your pet needs and where to find the proper food. Your exotic pet might also need certain supplements to meet its dietary requirements.
