What exotic pets does the clinic offer services to?
We are a full-service hospital, and we provide care to exotic pets such as amphibians, reptiles, hamsters, birds, mice, guinea pigs, ferrets, hedgehogs, rabbits, rats, and more. Don’t hesitate to call us to learn about the specific types of exotic pets we treat.
What is the most common cause of concern regarding exotic pets?
Nutritional diseases are the number one cause of concern among exotic pets. It is the number one reason exotic pets are presented to a veterinarian for an examination. All animals have specific nutritional requirements, and generalizations about dietary needs cannot be made based on assumed lifestyles and needs. For example, a guinea pig and a rat are both rodents, but their nutritional requirements are quite different.
Is after-hours emergency care available for exotic pets?
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide after-hour emergency care for exotic pets. In such an incident, we ask you to contact the Western College of Veterinary Medicine in Saskatoon at 1-306-966-7126. They have 24-hour service and an ICU available for exotic patients.
