We know that pets come in all shapes and sizes, so we are happy to treat exotic pets. In addition to cats and dogs, Dr. Meyerhoff and her skilled veterinary team also treat animals like birds, reptiles, and pocket pets like hamsters and guinea pigs.
Our team is highly trained and educated when it comes to caring for exotic pets, so you can rest assured that your pet is in good hands.
Exotic animals are uniquely individual between species. The anesthetic medications that can be used in one exotic species may not be fit for another species. Our doctors and trained staff have the knowledge to make anesthesia as stress free and safe as possible for your exotic pet. Although there is no such thing as 0% risk when an animal is put under general anesthesia, our team makes your animal’s safety our number one priority. Each patient is monitored closely while under general anesthesia. We have the ability to monitor heart rate and rhythm, oxygen saturation, and blood pressure, along with other vital signs that give us important information to ensure your pet has as safe of an anesthetic event as possible. We are able to perform a variety of surgical procedures on exotic animals. We can perform spaying and neutering of many exotic pets in our hospital, as well as laceration repairs, biopsies, and other surgical procedures on larger exotic animals, many times in the field. So whether you have a sugar glider that needs to be spayed, or a giraffe that needs a tumor removed, our exotics team is ready to help with your exotic healthcare.
If you have any questions or concerns about your exotic pets’ health, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
