FAQs for Care of Exotic Pets
We provide routine wellness and preventive care services for your bird or other exotic pet at All Animal Clinic. Exotic pets can be seen for medical or behavioral issues as well.
- Wellness & Preventive Care
Birds and other exotic pets, like cats and dogs, benefit from regular veterinary care to help them live a long, happy, and healthy life. Our veterinarians are trained in the special care and husbandry requirements, as well as veterinary treatment, that these animals require.
Our veterinarian will examine your pet's housing, nutrition, and care during the initial wellness visit. A comprehensive physical examination will be performed. When necessary, health screening tests and pet vaccinations will be discussed and recommended. Any concerns you may have about husbandry, health, or behavior will be discussed with our veterinarian, who will also answer any questions you may have. Recommendations will be tailored to your pet's and family's specific needs.

- What is an exotic mammal?
Rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, hedgehogs, chinchillas, rats, mice, hamsters, and gerbils are examples of exotic mammals. Many exotic pets are prey species in the wild, and as a result, they can hide illness symptoms until it is quite advanced, which is why preventive veterinary care is critical.
- What is the avian species?
The avian species encompasses everything that has to do with birds. These small exotic animals have grown in popularity as pets among those looking for intelligent, affectionate companions with plenty of personalities.
Many wild birds are prey species, and as a defense mechanism against predators, they may hide signs of illness, making consistent, qualified preventive veterinary care critical to their health and well-being.
- What are reptiles?
Reptiles are vertebrates that breathe air. They have a special skin made of bony plates, hard scales, or a combination of the two, and they shed an outer layer of skin regularly. Iguanas, tortoises, lizards, turtles, snakes, and other reptiles are among them.
Habitat and diet must be meticulously maintained to give your pet reptile the best chance at a healthy life. The importance of preventive care cannot be overstated.
