We Care for Exotic Pets, Too
While dogs and cats are our most frequent visitors, we also welcome various exotic animals to our clinic here in Boston. Exotics make good pets and every animal, regardless of their species, deserves thoughtful, compassionate care from a team that always takes their needs to heart. In addition to seeing your pet for routine wellness exams, we’re also happy to offer recommendations regarding their diet, environment, and more so you can share a longer-lasting bond with your companion.
Our exotic pet care services extend to a variety of species, including:
- Small mammals (hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats, and guinea pigs)
Even Exotic Pets Need Routine Check-Ups
Exotic pets are not invulnerable to the effects of illness and aging. Like dogs and cats, they may conceal their symptoms, or clinical signs may not reveal themselves until your pet’s condition has worsened. That’s why preventative care is just as important for their health needs as it is for our canine and feline friends.
One of our veterinarians has a special interest in caring for birds and other exotics and would be happy to see your companion on a yearly basis for their check-up. In addition to doing a physical exam, we may also suggest blood testing to ensure that your pet is healthy inside and out.
