Looking after exotic animals
We have a great team of bird and reptile vets. Our staff are experienced at looking after all sorts of weird and wonderful animals.
Below are some of our services for exotic animals.
As the Hamilton Zoo vets, we are used to treating a variety of unusual species including birds, reptiles, small mammals, amphibians and fish.
Exotic pet ownership is a tricky business. Exotic patients require specialized care both at home and at their veterinary clinic. Here at GVS, our bird and reptile vets place emphasis on disease prevention and patient monitoring to catch diseases early. We recommend yearly health checks, regular blood work and imaging to detect any problems your pet may have.
Our team of vets and nurses provide the following services in clinic:
- Routine health checks
- Husbandry and nutritional advice
- Development of preventative health programs
- Wing, nail and beak trimming
- Body condition scoring
- Small mammal desexing
- Selected soft tissue surgeries and dentistry
We aim to provide a stress-reduced environment for your pet’s visit and our bird and reptile vets have extensive training in handling a range of exotic species to ensure that your pet feels safe and secure whilst under examination.
As a team, we are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the weird and wonderful. Our website fact sheets are being updated all the time to provide the most up to date information about exotic pet ownership for animals like Lizards and turtles and much much more. If you have further questions, give us a call or pop in to chat with our friendly team.
