The Importance of Annual Exams for Your Exotic Pet

Signs of illness in birds and reptiles can be difficult to recognize, so it’s important to bring your pet in annually for a complete physical exam to ensure that he or she is healthy – early prevention is vital to prolonging your exotic pet’s life.

The annual exam is also a great time to discuss any questions you may have concerning your pet’s health. We understand how important it is to have peace of mind about your pet’s health, so please do not hesitate to ask us about any questions or concerns you may have regarding their health and wellbeing.

Additional testing may be recommended during the visit if we find something that raises concern or if it’s your first time bringing your pet in for an exam. For instance, birds may carry many different types of viruses or bacterial infections if they were acquired from a breeder or pet store. Your bird may not be showing signs of sickness, but they could potentially be the carrier of disease.
