At Carolina Veterinary Specialists in Huntersville, our board-certified avian and exotic specialist treats exotic pets including birds, reptiles and small mammals such as rabbits, hamsters and guinea pigs.
Like cats and dogs, avian and exotic pets require regular veterinary care to ensure they are healthy and that any developing health issues are detected early. Our board-certified avian and exotic specialist is trained in the physiology and unique care requirements for these pets.
During your pet's initial appointment, she will complete a physical exam and review their housing and nutritional needs. She will also discuss symptoms of common illnesses that you should look out for, and make recommendations for their preventive health care.
If your pet becomes ill, our animal hospital is equipped with diagnostic capabilities, and our veterinary specialist will develop a treatment plan based on their unique needs.
