Exotic Medicine and Surgery

We provide medical assessments and surgical procedures for a variety of other exotic animals including:

“Pocket Pets” – rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, hamsters, rats, gerbils and chinchillas

Reptiles – iguanas and other lizards, turtles, tortoises, and snakes

Others such as ferrets, hedgehogs, pot-bellied pigs, pygmy goats, etc

We see many management- related diseases in these animals. Most of these diseases can be prevented with appropriate knowledge of their nutritional requirements and environmental needs. Often advice given by lay-people is based on old knowledge. This field is constantly being improved upon as research is being done.

If a condition is beyond our expertise, we may consult with specialists in this field or refer you on to one.
