Often times, it is difficult to care for an exotic pet. Birds and other exotics need specialized medical attention that isn’t always easily available.

When Do Exotic Pets Need Veterinary Care?
Just like cats and dogs, exotic pets need routine wellness exams with our vets. However, there are other times that your pet needs care that you may not notice. One important sign is changes in your pet’s feeding pattern, which could indicate that it is not feeling well. For instance, if you own a bird, it is easy to know when it is not feeling well. The bird will not finish the amount of food or water it normally does. There are many diseases that birds can suffer from, including avian tuberculosis. It is important to seek veterinary treatment if you notice even a small change in your pet’s behavior. This will allow us to treat the condition and prevent it from worsening.
Additionally, if your exotic pet is having difficulty breathing, has extreme fatigue, or cannot rest, it needs emergency care.
As an exotic pet owner, it might be challenging to determine whether your pet's condition requires immediate medical attention or not. We recommend speaking with our veterinarians about care for your specific pet. We can tell you about signs and symptoms of illnesses to look out for.
