Adult Animal Care
We recommend all exotic pets be examined twice a year in order to prevent/detect medical problems. Pets age faster than we do, and as a result, health problems can progress much more rapidly. Regular wellness examinations will confirm that your pet is healthy or help catch problems before they can become more serious. Your pet's semi-annual veterinary visit will include some, if not all of the following: a health consultation, blood work, a physical examination, pain assessment, nutritional counseling, vaccinations if necessary, an intestinal parasite screening, and a recommendation for an on-going wellness routine. We will assess your pet’s comfort level and address any concerns about pain.
Diet and nutrition are also vital to maintaining your pet's health. Feeding your exotic pet a diet appropriate for his or her species, age, body condition, and lifestyle helps encourage a long and healthy life. Please consult your veterinarian to help you find the right food to fit your pet’s health needs.
