The Big Needs of Small Animals: Understanding the Basics of Exotic Pet Care

Exotic pet care.

A significant portion of traditional pet owners also care for exotic animals. This means in homes populated with cats and/or dogs, there could also be any number of birds, lizards, reptiles, arachnids, rodents, amphibians, fish and more. It is wonderful when people embrace the myriad responsibilities of each species (each with their own complex needs), but exotic pet care isn’t always fully understood or embraced prior to adoption. The good news is that with thorough preparation and research, lifelong health and happiness is possible for exotic pets. The team at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital is here to show you how to understand the important aspects of exotic pet care.
