Care For Exotic Pets

  • Wellness & Preventive Care

    During an initial wellness examination, our vets will provide your pet with a comprehensive physical examination in order to assess their health and well-being. We will also inquire about your pet's housing nutrition and general care, discussing their needs with you and your family.

    We will also take time to discuss any concerns about health or behavior you may have about your exotic pet, answering any questions and recommending treatment plans as required. We are sure to always tailor our recommendations and treatment plans to the needs of your pet and your family.
