Exotic Pet Services in Berkeley, California

Specialized care is needed for exotic pets, and at PETS Referral Center, we take pride in providing services that are specifically designed to meet the unique needs of your cherished and uncommon pets.

Why Choose Our Exotic Pet Services?

We aim to provide high-level medicine and patient care for your furry, feathered and scaled family members. We see primary cases and will also work with your primary veterinarian to provide comprehensive care. This includes referrals for advanced diagnostics, dental procedures, surgery, and ongoing hospitalization.

As this service is new to PETS, we are still working to bring in all our equipment, so please bear with us as there are certain cases/procedures we are not yet able to accommodate.

The emergency department can accommodate mammal patients when Dr. Gleeson is not onsite but can only see reptiles/birds on a limited basis.
