Like cats and dogs, it’s important that your exotic pet receives regular wellness exams. We recommend that most exotic pets receive a wellness exam at least annually. We’ll perform a physical exam to check for health conditions and abnormalities. We’ll also check for weight changes and make nutritional recommendations. Exotic pets don’t always show signs of illness or injury like cats or dogs, so it’s important that we stay on top of your exotic pet’s health before any issues advance too far.
Welcoming a New Exotic Pet to the Family
If you’ve recently added a new exotic pet to your family, make sure you bring them into Shady Brook Animal Hospital for a wellness exam as soon as you are able. We want to make sure that your exotic pet is off to a good start.
Our initial visit with your pet will include:
- Physical exam
- Disease screening
- Nutritional consultation
- Laboratory testing
Getting your new exotic pet a wellness exam is essential to establishing a baseline of health for your companion animal. Our preventative approach to medicine means that we want to collect as much information as possible about your exotic pet so that we can notice changes more easily down the line. We also want to ensure that your pet is healthy and isn’t carrying any diseases that may harm you or your family.
Dentistry for Exotic Pets
Rodents and rabbits are often prone to dental issues. As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited animal hospital, we’re able to provide dental care for all of your pets – including your exotic pets! When you bring in your rodents or rabbits, we’ll take a look at their mouth and let you know if we think your pet could benefit from any dental care.
Surgery for Exotic Pets
Exotic pets require a different kind of surgical care than cats and dogs – even for routine procedures. At Shady Brook Animal Hospital, we can spay and neuter your rabbits and help determine what kind of services your exotic pets may need. Because surgery on exotic animals is so unusual, you will need to talk to Dr. Sarah Neaderhouser about your pet’s unique situation.
Any surgical procedure we perform will be entirely at Dr. Neaderhouser’s discretion, and she is available 3 days per week to help with your pet’s care. If your rabbit needs to be spayed or neutered, you can trust Dr. Neaderhouser to ensure that your pet gets the specialized attention they need, and if we can’t help with a specific procedure, we’ll let you know why it isn’t advisable or refer you to someone even more specialized.
