Exotic Medicine and Surgery

We offer a wide range of exotic services and information on husbandry and care for exotics pets including rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, chinchillas, hamsters, rats, mice, snakes, turtles, tortoises, lizards, snakes and all companion animal birds.

Appointments are all 30 minutes to allow for a thorough history and physical examination within our dedicated exotic-only exam room.
