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.
Exotic Pets That We Serve:
Currently, we accept appointments for all small mammals, parrots, backyard poultry, and most reptiles and amphibians. This includes:
- Guinea pigs
- Small rodents (hamsters, rats, mice, gerbils, degus)
- Sugar gliders
- All sizes of parrots
- Ducks, geese, swans
- Pigeons, doves
If your pet is not listed, please call to determine if we can accommodate you. Our ability to see aquatic species (fish, axolotls) will increase soon!
If you feel your pet is having an emergency, please call the emergency department to determine if and when your pet can be seen prior to filling out an online request. The emergency department can accommodate mammal patients when Dr. Gleeson is not onsite but can only see reptiles/birds on a limited basis.
