Exotic and Avian Care

Wantagh’s Preferred Exotic and Avian Care Veterinarian

Exotic pets often hide signs of illness, so it’s important to bring your pet to Wantagh Animal Hospital for an annual exam to ensure his or her health. It is important to catch any health issues early on to prolong your exotic pet’s life, as well as to improve their quality-of-life.

During the exam, your pet will also receive:

  • A comprehensive physical exam
  • Thorough diet history and evaluation
  • Dental examination and dental care as needed
  • Diagnostic tests as needed

What to Expect During Your Pet’s Exam

If you have acquired an exotic pet or small mammal, we recommend that you bring your new pet to see us within one to two weeks after purchase. This allows us to review their current health condition, and discuss at-home care. Your exotic pet’s annual exam is also the perfect time for you to bring a list of questions you may have to one of our veterinarians concerning their health. We schedule enough time for you to bring any questions or concerns you have—we know how important it is to have peace of mind regarding your pet’s health.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to make an appointment for your exotic pet, please call us today to speak with a staff member.
