EXOTIC PET VETERINARIAN CARE

What is an Exotic Pet?

The term “exotic pet” applies to any household pet other than the more traditional dog or cat, this includes:

New Exotic Pet

When you first bring home your new exotic pet, we recommend that you keep it separated from your other pets for one month. Preferably, they should also have their initial health evaluation by a veterinarian prior to their introduction to your current pets.

At Salmon Brook, during an your new exotic pet’s veterinary visit, we will discuss how to care for your new exotic pet and answer any and all questions you may have. Many pet stores offer a warranty on newly purchased animals that lasts for 2-3 weeks, and it is ideal to schedule a veterinary visit within this time frame. These measures are important to ensuring that you have obtained a healthy pet free of diseases or infections that may be introduced into your collection.

Bringing Your Exotic Pet to the Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital

We recognize that coming to the vet can be a stressful experience for any pet, particularly for our exotic patients. So at the Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital, we aim to minimize the amount of stress your exotic pet experiences by asking that when you bring them for their visit that you arrive 15 minutes early to fill out new patient paperwork.

If possible, we suggest you bring your pet in their enclosure so as to help limit the stress. This will also be helpful to assess your setup and make any recommendations. It is also best not to clean the enclosure prior to bringing your pet in. This will allow your exotic pet to be surrounded by familiar, comfortable smells, and will also retain samples for diagnostic testing to better evaluate your pet. For reptile patients, it is best to bring them with some sort of heated transport, such as a warm towel or hot water bottle.

Wellness Exams and Preventative Care

The development of health issues in exotic pets can be gradual and difficult to detect by even the most diligent pet owner; therefore, we recommend regular checkups and wellness visits. During these visits, your pet will receive a full physical exam and health checkup, thorough evaluation of husbandry practices, and recommendations for improvement where necessary. We offer a wide array of wellness services for exotic patients here at the Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital, including:
