Exotic Pet Care

Do you prefer your animal companion to be covered in feathers or scales? Is the company of an exotic creature something you relish?

At Veterinary Angels Medical Center, we recognize that not everyone chooses a dog or cat as their pet. We also understand that birds, reptiles and exotics have special needs and requirements to keep them happy and healthy. Our doctors and staff are fully trained in exotic pet care. We can answer any questions you may have about a new or existing pet.

Veterinary Angels Medical Center sees all kinds of exotic animals including but not limited to:

  • Birds
  • Rats
  • Hamsters
  • Ferrets
  • Snakes
  • Lizards
  • Chinchillas
  • Gerbils
  • Guinea pigs
  • Rabbits
  • Sugar gliders

Birds

While the human-bird bond has been long established, the proper care and interpretation of disease in birds has been poorly understood. At Veterinary Angels Medical Center, we’ve stayed on top of advancements in avian medicine, surgery and behavior. Both Dr. Lisa Done and Dr. Odeliah Bouganim are proficient in providing exceptional avian veterinary care. They also happen to be bird owners. Whether it’s gender determination, diagnostics, or simply diet and long-term health practices, we are committed to keeping birds and their owners happy and healthy!

Some of the avian health care services we provide include:

  • Affordable Wellness Plans
  • Physical Examinations
  • New Bird Exams and Care Counseling
  • Behavioral Management
  • Complete Blood Testing
  • Infectious Disease Testing
  • Gender Testing
  • Heavy Metal Screening

  • Pharmaceutical Management
  • Avian Surgery
  • Preventative Medicine

Reptiles

Do you have a pet snake, turtle, tortoise or lizard?  Reptiles are popular pets that (despite our best efforts) often require medical attention. It’s important to remember that not only do reptiles have special habits and needs, but they also require care from a qualified veterinarian.  Both Dr. Lisa Done and Dr. Odeliah Bouganim are well trained in proper reptile husbandry and care.

Some of the services we offer to assist you and your pet reptile include:

  • Complete physical examinations
  • Diet assessment and husbandry recommendations
  • Blood and fecal testing
  • Digital radiography
  • Environmental enrichment
  • Boarding

Choosing to own an exotic pet requires a special kind of owner, one that can afford to commit the time to provide the appropriate care. These kinds of animals make very rewarding companions but it’s important to remember that because they are not a typical pet, they have special needs. We can provide the guidance, advice and support you need to help your unique pet thrive.

Please feel free to give us a call and ask our passionate team of animal lovers any questions you may have about exotic pets.
