Exotics

• Companion birds
• Turtles
• Snakes and lizards
• Rabbits
• Ferrets
• Guinea pigs and chinchillas
• Hedgehogs
• Rats and mice
• Hamsters and gerbils

Exotic animals has specific housing, dietary and socializing requirements. Each is prone to specific diseases requiring diagnostic tests and treatments that can vary, sometimes significantly, from those needed to treat dogs and cats. Veterinarians who treat these patients have to obtain special training beyond that given in veterinary school, and specialized equipment to meet those needs.
