If you own an exotic animal you know how difficult it can be to see a vet and receive the very best diagnosis and prescriptions. This is because most vets specialize in working with dogs and cats. Some might see other traditional mammals, such as rabbits or even ferrets, but when it comes to more exotic animals such as specialty birds, snakes, or other reptiles, your pet might be beyond their level of expertise.
At TLC for Pets, our veterinarian has years of experience providing residents of Owings Mills, Reisterstown, and the surrounding areas with exotic pet care. Our veterinarian will work with your exotic animal to identify and address any health issues your pet is experiencing.
Understanding Your Exotic Animal
Cats and dogs are by far the most common pets, so it makes sense why most veterinarians specialize in caring for them. If you own a less common pet, you will want to make sure your veterinarian has training and experience working with exotic pets. Exotic pets require specific medications. In many instances, medicine made for a cat or dog will not work for a lizard or bird. While most veterinarians will have a basic understanding of the anatomy of other animals, our veterinarian specializes in it.
Treating Exotic Pets
Aside from standard veterinary care, it is our mission to provide the best in education for you and your family. We are happy to provide advice about the special needs of your pets, including behavioral training options and information on proper environmental heating requirements for healthy reptile habitats. In certain cases, your exotic pet may need to undergo surgery. We perform soft tissue, orthopedic, and microsurgery for small patients.
