Exotic Pet Care

Exotic PetsAt Animal Medical Hospital we take pride in being able to provide quality health care for your nontraditional and exotic pets. We routinely treat pocket pets, avians and reptiles, but if you have a less common or unusual pet, just give us a call and we should be able to accommodate you. For staff safety we do not treat primates or venomous reptiles.

As a large percentage of our patients are exotic pets, we provide many special services tailored to these unique critters including:
  • Annual preventive physical examinations
  • Diagnostic testing including blood work and external or fecal parasite testing
  • Diets and nutritional counseling
  • Rabbit, ferret, and rodent dentistry services: We have special instruments for this purpose and can use endoscopy for detailed examinations and record-keeping if necessary. We can provide incisor removal in rabbits with malocclusions that require frequent tooth trimming.
  • In-house compounded medications and an available compounding pharmacy for precise dosing as well as tasty flavors to make medicating easier for both the owner and the pet
  • Surgery services: We offer routine surgeries (spaying and neutering) as well as many other surgeries often needed by our exotic patients such as abscess treatment, adrenal gland removal, mass removals, bladder surgery, and fracture repairs. We provide appropriate pain control tailored to each patient and have appropriately-sized anesthesia machines and surgical instruments for these often tiny patients.
  • Lupron injections for ferrets with adrenal disease where surgery is not an option

      Dr.Clark is always a pleasure to see! He treats our Lola with so much love and respect. English Bulldogs are a particularly special breed with many specific medical ailments, and I believe he truly understands her and the breed itself. He never rushes us, and always answers all of our questions! One of the best Vetenarian Doctors we have ever had and we always recommend him to everyone. Also, the staff there is always super friendly and loves to see Lola :-) Thank you!!
