Exotic Pet Care

Exotic pets like birds, reptiles, and some types of rodents are wonderful. They bring light and happiness to the lives of their owners much like a cat or a dog would. They also need special care to make sure that they are healthy, and happy.

.

What Special Care does your Exotic Pets Need?

Exotic pets, much like your dog or cat, need routine vet visits as well. They may not need the same vaccinations or medications, but they certainly do need to be seen by their vet at least once a year to do a general physical and to make sure that they are as healthy as possible. Thomas Glen Erin Animal Hospital in the Mississauga area can help you to get the best care for your exotics.

Aside from the routine care, exotic pets, must also get care in terms of specialized services that are specific to your pet. Exotic birds, like parrots for instance, will need to have their feathers checked or potentially clipped. They will also need attention to their beaks, because there is no such thing as a dentist for birds. For reptiles you may have to have their skin checked and their nails cared for. Hamster and gerbil pets may need to have their weight and fecal sample checked. It is always best to make sure that your pet is in tip top shape and caring for your pet with the help of a great vet can make a difference.

Can You Take an Exotic Pet to a normal Vet?

In some cases, you may be able to take your pet to a normal vet. It is always best to take the time to contact them and see if you can bring in your exotic animal rather than just assuming. For some exotics it may be best to take them to a vet that specializes in your particular type of animal.

Taking the time to find a vet that cares for your particular animal is going to be best for both you and your pet. You can avoid improper diagnosis with the help of a vet like the ones at Thomas Glen Erin Animal Hospital who understand your pet. A great vet can have a positive influence on your pet maintaining his or her happiness and health.
