Care for Exotic Pets at Cleveland Park Animal Hospital

Exotic pets are becoming more popular. These unusual pets have veterinary needs that are uniquely their own. It is important that they receive regular veterinary care, just like more traditional pets.

Exotic Birds

Although parrots and other feathered friends do not receive regular vaccinations like a dog or a cat, they still need regular checkups to keep them in top health.

Birds require a highly varied diet. They can become malnourished on a diet of pet store bird food. Talk with your veterinarian about diet, training, cage considerations and any health questions you may have.

Birds are experts at keeping any health problem hidden until it is too late to fix the problem. Regular veterinary checkups can prevent this tragedy. Parrots are also rather well known for getting into trouble and injuring themselves. Having a veterinarian that is familiar with your bird when he or she is in good health is a wonderful resource when there is an illness or emergency.

Small Mammals

The variety of small mammals available as pets has increased dramatically throughout the years. If your family pet is a rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, gerbil, chinchilla, or ferret, we can help you take the best possible care of them—keeping them healthy and happy. Most small mammals do not need vaccinations. They still need care to make sure their nutritional needs are met and are healthy.


Snakes and lizards are very popular pets. They tend to need in-depth care, especially when it comes to husbandry.

We welcome your reptile to our practice for any veterinary care they may require, as long as they are a non-venomous species. If your reptile has a change in feeding habits or activity level, it is vitally important that he or she is seen by an experienced reptile veterinarian as soon as possible.

We will be happy to advise current or future reptile owners about proper care of these unique pets and their special needs.
