Exotic Pets

It’s not only dogs and cats our vets look after! Our vets have a clinical interest and plenty of experience in exotic pet care. When many people think of exotics, they might think about lizards, fish and birds. However, in the veterinary world, pets grouped together in the exotics category also include rabbits, guinea pigs, rats, mice and most small mammals that aren’t dogs or cats! Our passionate and caring team has a long history of providing high quality care for exotic pets great and small, so we can help to ensure your pets stay happy and healthy.
