Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Care For Exotic Pets?
Depending on the nature of your exotic pet, you should be providing them with specialized treatment even when at home. When dealing with these kinds of animals, it’s important to always be mindful of their habitat, habits, behaviors, and their nutrition. They should have a specific diet.
Species that fall under this type of service almost always usually require specific care and needs, so it’s important to do your research or ask our vet’s advice before taking one home. Also, not all clinics can work with these creatures, therefore, you need to which one is the best, and the closest to you.
How Often Should I Bring My Exotic Pet to the Vet?
You should bring in your exotic animals for a check-up at least one to two times a year. Unlike cats or dogs, exotic pets don’t necessarily show obvious symptoms of illness or disease. Therefore, an underlying condition may go long unnoticed, eventually causing more harm to you and your pet animal.
Since some of these creatures are also more sensitive and prone to sickness, it is best to bring them to our clinic regularly, including when there are signs of discomfort in the patient. Since there might not be many clinics that specialize in these creatures, you should find one prior to getting your exotic friend.
When Should I Bring My Exotic Pet to the Clinic?
Every time your exotic pet shows signs of lethargy, difficulty breathing, loss of appetite, or other behavioral changes, it is advised to bring them to the clinic. While it is true that initially observing your pet may help you determine the origin of the issue, postponing veterinary care may prevent medical professionals from providing necessary treatment.
For the best advice, we recommend asking our veterinarian for behavioral changes to watch out for, especially when it has to do with the maintenance of your pet’s health and welfare.
