Exotic Pet Care

Care for nontraditional pets.

While it's common knowledge that kittens and puppies require annual check-ups to maintain their health, the same level of care is often not anticipated for reptiles. However, many veterinarians specializing in reptiles advocate for bi-annual visits to facilitate early detection and treatment of potentially life-threatening diseases. Establishing a regular care plan for reptiles is vital in ensuring they enjoy a long and healthy life.

It's worth noting that venomous snakes and other dangerous reptiles should never be kept as pets. If you're considering acquiring a reptile, it's crucial to consult with a veterinarian beforehand to ensure you select a species that is suitable for your circumstances and level of expertise. This proactive approach can help prevent potential problems and ensure the well-being of both the pet and the owner.

Comprehensive Reptile Veterinary Medicine

The initial veterinary visit for a reptile is often the most critical. During this crucial check-up, a veterinarian will conduct a thorough physical examination and may perform diagnostic tests to assess the reptile's overall health and detect any underlying conditions. Additionally, the veterinarian will typically engage in a discussion with the owner about proper housing, feeding, and other essential care requirements for the reptile.

At our hospital, we offer a comprehensive range of veterinary services tailored specifically for reptiles. However, pet owners need to remain vigilant and watch for potential problems, understanding the signs that may indicate an issue. Our veterinary staff are highly skilled in diagnosing and addressing health concerns in reptiles. Therefore, pet owners must schedule a check-up for their reptiles as soon as possible to identify any underlying issues.

Some of the services we provide for reptiles include:

  • Physical Examinations
  • Radiological Testing
  • Fecal Analysis
  • Microbiological Testing
  • Blood Testing
