Pet Exotic Care in Santa Rosa, CA

If you own any exotic pets such as birds, reptiles, ferrets, rabbits, hedgehogs, and other pocket pets, it is good to know where to go when they become sick or injured. Establishing a good working relationship with an exotic pet veterinarian in Santa Rosa can be a challenge for any pet owner but is a special challenge for the exotic pet owner. The exotic pet owner must find a vet who is willing to see their pet, knows something about their pet, and has the facilities, equipment, and materials to treat their pet. Not all vets see exotics, and not all the ones who say they do know what they are doing.

As an owner, it is important that you bring your pet in for annual exams. It is very easy not to recognize symptoms of illness in your exotic pet when your pet exhibits them. Often, exotic pets don’t get to the veterinarian in time, and sometimes that can result in a very sad ending. At Santa Rosa Veterinary Hospital, we can give your pet a full exam, monitor your animal’s weight, detect slight onset of disease, give you nutritional, behavioral, and husbandry education, and develop a relationship with you and your pet that may one day save its life.
