Care for Exotic Animals

Exotic animals require specialized care to help them lead a long and full life. Many have complex systems, that require the care of experienced veterinary staff. Unlike traditional pets, exotic pets tend to more successfully hide the symptoms of illness and disease, which makes it unapparent until it becomes significantly advanced and sometimes life-threatening. Because of this, having regular veterinarian checkups for your exotic pets can catch these conditions before they become advanced. If a condition is suspected, additional tests can be ordered.

What to Expect During Your Exotic Veterinarian Checkup?

Your exotic pet appointment will be similar to what you would see during the check-up with a dog or a cat. The veterinarian will discuss the nutrition, housing needs, and environment necessary to help your pet survive and thrive. If vaccines are due, then they will be administered and blood work may be drawn, or stool samples were taken to check for illness, parasites, and other issues that could affect your pet’s health. For some types of exotic pets, the vet may also discuss with you heartworm prevention and medication and whether or not spaying and neutering would be beneficial to your pet.
